irish slang for a person who constantly asks friends and relatives for money and makes up stories. This person is similar to a miser or a cheapskate and will often lie about how much money they have. The word is derived from the word "doll" which is the irish term for social welfare.
Dont ask him / her to the cinema. He / She is a bit of a dooln and i dont want to lend them money.
This word is taken from the Irish term for social welfare. A dooln is essentially a grinch type individually who makes up tales and pretends they are poor. They hoard money like a miserable goblin. A dooln is not a social individual and prefers to stay indoors and count their "hard earned" cash.
A dooln is generally treated with contempt and caution

I invited him / her to my wedding but he said he wasnt willing to waste his / her money. What a dooln!!!
