Irish slang (mostly used in the southern County of Cork, famous for its plethora of slang terms)

a "sham" is primarily the term used to describe a young male knacker, specifically the ones who walk around with a chip on thier shoulder, thinking they own everything in sight, and that they are the greatest thing on god's green earth

it can also be used to show genuine praise, much to the same affect as "the shit".

A good person that you've ever wanted. Sham is a person that always be there whenever you need someone to talk to. He is sweet and romantic but not boring. He is not handsome but pleasurable. He likes to joke but he knows when to be serious. He knows well how to treat a woman. However, He never gives up getting girl’s heart he is on. But be careful, he is full of secrets. He is intelligent enough to take you as a donkey. He is kind but don’t dare to hope that he will be honest to you. Sham is a reliable person but not trustable.
