I'm gonna throw out a question to all and hope that my ignorance isn't showing too much..... What part of this makes you assume that it is a male ?  It looks like "It's good with a green jumper" in my head.  Is the male "He" assumed or is there something that I am missing ?

Is mise le meas,

Doug

"Leis" means "With him" in Irish. In Irish, one says "Is good with him" to mean "He likes". So "Is maith leis a gheansaí glas" translates directly to "Is good with him his jumper green", which means "He likes his green jumper".
