Basically a chav in ireland. They are common drags on society, will probraly live on the dole when they are older (16/17) drop out of school as soon as they are legally able to (16) and will mitch off school until they are. Usually pop out a few skanger children covered head to toe in little tacky skanger outfts.
Smoke like chimneys and love doing so in school bathrooms where they can piss off as many fellow students as possible.

Usual female skanger; Plastered in panstick (which leaves a nice orange coating on their school shirt), have an orange hue, speak in a simple english language, are often in bathrooms trying to make themselves appear yet more orange, have low attention spans, act 'rale hard', spend all off their time with their skanger boyfirends in their boy racer cars, wearers of extremely huge hoop earrings, usually dye their hair rotten colours(often 2 tone brown and blonde) and have a constant smell of stale smoke. Nice.

Usual male skanger; owners of boy racer cars, congregate in large groups where they try to act 'rale hard'. Shout lude comments at ANY female walking past (try to keep your head down and don't make eye contact), inappropriate, talk so strangely that even natives to ireland have a hard time understanding their knacker way of talking, not a fan of personal hygiene, always surround by a cloud of Lynx (that really awful smelling male product(?) that every young male wears for some reason but no actual female likes it) and wearer of tacky full tracksuits. Nice.
As you can tell by the descriptions, they are valued members of society.

Skanger; I'd b rale cool like that sure. Don't start on be i'd break yar face i wud.

Normal person; Right. And you are what, 12?

Skanger; Shut yar face ya rich barbie with yar fancy shoes on ya.U don't be rale hard like me

Normal person; (rolls eyes and walks away)

An Irish slang word to describe a specific group of people. Scarily, the connotations associated with describing someone as a skanger are almost identical to those associated with describing someone as a charva in Britain, despite the fact that these words refer to completely different groups of people in different countries.
In Ireland, they're called skangers, in Britain, charvas.

Usually talk like this "well wats the craic" or "wats da story??"
A typical skanger: Sam Ward (well the faggot pretends to be)
