Definition: It is in front of you, it is directly in front of you.
Derivation: Corruption and confusion of various words. 'Ós do chomhair amach' - in front of you and 'Cóir' - right. (Joyce). And note 'Saucepan came into the kitchen in his stocking vamps and disgraced us overright the strange woman'. (Murphy).
