  1. drate

    In playing card games like 25 or 45 more than 50 years ago in Ireland I recall non trump cards referred to as "drates". I never saw the word in written form, nor did I ever see the word " forninst" written down. These were words in common use among adults at the time.

    He led a drate and she trumped him with the Jack of hearts.

    Etymology: Irish
