what does Thanum an Dhul mean?

i was listening to Finnegan's Wake (one of my favorite songs) and i was wondering about the last line that says "Whirl your whiskey 'round like blazes Thanum an Dhul! Do think i'm dead?" what does Thanum an Dhul mean please and thank you

also (if possible) can you tell me how to pronounce if there are multiple pronunciations

  • Its "d'anam don diabhal"

    Its just sounds like "Thanum an Dhul"

    "d'anam an diahbal" means "your soul to the devil"

    Its a curse a bit like "damn you"
