Despite popular belief D'arvit was not the creation of popular Irish author Eoin Colfer. In the Aran islands their is a legend that a dark banshee (Banshee which goes against the laws of magic) will rip your soul from your body when your alone regardless of whether your dieing or not and u feel a chill run up your spine a dark banshee is near and the only way to protect yourself would be to utter "Dh'ábhoit". The folklore was told all over the provinces of Connacht and Munster but during the English conquest by Henry the VIII. It was anglicized as "d'arvit".which is pronounced the same as the original and now its mainly used in Gaeltacht of Connacht as a form of a curse or cuss, in english or Gaelic (Irish). The word is seen as the equivilant of "Fuck" due to its versatility. Some see it's new found popularity as a curse on the Irish Language while some see it as a piece of Irish everywhere. It's use outside of Ireland is rare though.
Versatility:

Original Form: D'arvit - Hey! D'arvit you
'ing Form: Ag Dh'arvit - Who have you been Ag Dh'arvit?
'ed Form: Dh'arvithe - Omg! You Dh'arvithe who up?
Noun form: An D'arvit - MAN! Your such a an d'arvit!
