Slang word most often used by Britain, New Zealand and Australia.

American teenagers use it because they just follow other countries, thinking it makes them Indie or something.
American: Hey Mate.
British: No you can't use that, stop trying to be cool and stuff, it just fails, be an American and say something like 'Hey fatty'.
Australian: Yeah, people to we try to copy you, but you copy us, stop trying to use mate.
New Zealand: Finally people understand ...

a word that is commonly used by irish males,generally between the ages of twenty one up to the mid thirties.

it is a word that has only come to light over previous years,and is generally used when a male does not want to become very well attached to another individual (another male) ,often heard in the workplace,a bar,a nightclub,on a street corner,a pool hall,anywhere really.

The word "mate" is used in a completley different way from its use in Austrailia and new Zealand,and also Great Britain,and is not to be confused.

(chiefly used in the north/south dublin area,and its leafy suburbs)
"Alrite mate,whats the craic? you never got back to me."

"ah not much happenin' here,look mate,id better head off,im up to me eyeballs in work,seeya mate"

"whats the story mate? what were you doin' slackin' off work??"
