20 = "fiche" but you'll also hear "scór"

40 = "ceathracha" but some people like to use "daichead" for 40. Colin prefers "ceathracha" because it reminds him of the Irish for 4.

41 Daichead a haon
42 Daichead a dó
43 Daichead a trí
44 Daichead a ceathair
45 Daichead a cúig
46 Daichead a sé
47 Daichead a seacht
48 Daichead a hocht
49 Daichead a naoi

50 = "caoga" Some people use "leathchéad", literally meaning half ("leath") of a hundred ("céad"), which is of course, 50!
