Apparently, the new politically correct way at several institutes of higher learning to refer to entities previously known as freshmen.
Steven: That red-headed freshman is so hot! I'm totally going to get that bitch drunk and bone her tomorrow night!
Greg: Really, Steven, I'm ashamed of your uncouth behavior -- the polite way of speaking about such an individual dictates that we use the term "first year."

First years is the collective term given to first year secondary school students, typically in Ireland. Usually aged 11/12, they are seen as innocent and naive compared to their fifth or sixth year schoolmates, and are at the bottom of the school food chain.
Older Student: Jesus look at all the first years, the size of that one's bag. He's as green as grass! He won't last ten minutes in Ms. Smyth's class.

Someone around the age of 12/13 who has not yet had a meet/shift/french kiss. Irish slang.
In the Irish educational system, after graduating from primary school (about 12 years old) you move onto the first year in secondary school. Therefore a first-year is just your average pre-teen. However, by that age, the best way to be popular is to not be a fridget. A fridget is someone who has never "met" (also Irish slang.) someone. In most cases, people are slagged for being a first-year fridget, but only lightly by friends. Being a first-year fridget isn't bad, but boys typically try to get a meet before first year to avoid the situation altogether, and also in an attempt to show off to their friends.
"Hey, in your school do you get bullied for being a first-year fridget?"
"Nah, yer grand."
"Really?"
"No mate, you're screwed."
"..."
"Don't worry though. Just go to a disco or something. You'll get a meet there.

"Thanks, bro."
