The obscure word of the week is rapparee

This week’s obscure English word is rapparee.

And yes, it might sound like some kind of jamboree for rappers. Actually it’s a seventeenth century term for an Irish bandit or malfeasant.

Your challenge: write a comment using the word.

One thought on “The obscure word of the week is rapparee

  1. “He may look like a gentleman, but he’s really a rapparee of the worst kind. Don’t have anything to do with him, my girl!” (The word seems to belong in one of those books with a torso on the cover.)
