So tell me…

Geoff Pullum, over at Language Log, found himself understandably irritated by Frank Delaney’s assertion that there is no word for “sex” in Irish. He consulted a friend, who gave him this list:

ag déanamh pís ghlaice
ag ealáin
an cleas a dhéanamh
collaíocht
craiceann a bhualadh
craiceann a dhéanamh
cuid a dhéanamh de
focáil
gnéas
Sadly, of course, I chose to learn German rather than Irish at school. So can anyone enlighten me as to what these intriguing words and phrases actually mean?
