I used to hear "the messages". It seemed to mean to go to the shops for a few items rather than do the weekly shopping which people tended to do back then one day a week.

Is "messages" a Cork thing when used in the context of going shopping?

I never had that in my family but I often heard people say they had to go to town to do some messages, and it just meant going to the shop.
Maybe you're just a youngster - back in the day, never used in Cork. Colleague from Limerick remembers it but said not that common.
Likewise shades - as per other post, a very recent saying and not exclusively Cork like bazzer, wazzie, oul doll, rubber dollies or glassy alleys!!
