A word used to define those who live in Co. Leitrim, Ireland and are usually not capable of functioning in higher society (in Dublin, to which they often refer as "The Pale") without making a fool of themselves on a regular basis. Often make stupid mistakes, put their foot in their mouth and tend to be extremely socially awkward in most situations. Unless they're milking cows. Being ák-ward usually means they excel at this and other farming activities. Generally adamantly deny their culchie heritage.

Girl 2: Dude. Way to be Ák-ward and mention our Secret Santa in front of people we didn't include in it!
Girl 1: Woops.
