san oíche = at night
sa lá = in the day
leath = half
i ndiaidh = after
go dtí = to

You will also hear "tar éis" (tar-aysh) for 'after' and "chun" (hun) for 'to' but in the north, "i ndiaidh" (after) and "go dtí" (to) are used and they're the only ones you need to know for this game!

Although you don't need it for this game, the word for 'a minute' is "bomaite" (buh-mitch-ah) in the north but "nóiméad" everywhere else.
