Ok I am going to try and throw a few slang things. I am gonna start off kind of doing some of the examples you used. Again this is kind of speaking from people around me in my area.
To have sex-bang,tap that,hit that,get laid Slutty- loose,skank,"she has been rode hard and put away wet one too many times" Brave- "He's got balls" " he must have balls of steel" Goodbye- see ya,peace,later,i'm out,catch ya on the flipside,holla at me,don't be a stranger Annoyed-i am about to flip my wig Messed up- my bad,that's on me, Pregnant-knocked up, prego, bun in the oven Great-"sweet",dank,that is the shit,on point,the bomb Annoying me,you gotta be kidding me- "really?"are you serious? you're killing me Smalls!"-that is a quote from the movie "Sandlot" staple in young boys life when I was growing up. Expensive-high dollar, mucho dinero,too rich for my blood Fell over-busted his ass,wiped out Give me some room- back off,check yourself, can I breathe?,get out of my grill,get off my back Something will get done- i swear on my mother's grave, or I swear on my life,scout's honor(can mean more just that you are being honest),i got ya Talking-running their mouth,yapping, flapping their gums, diarrhea of the mouth Extremely happy or excited-pumped, jazzed, Drunk-wasted,shit faced, sloshed, hammered Procrastinating-pissing around, walking in circles Going to the bathroom-hitting the head,need to see a man about a horse, draining the lizard, watering the lily's, making a deposit, dropping off a load Fag-just kind of negative calling of someone or a name used in joking with buddies-"what's up fag?" . Def not a cig,but I try to be more responsible and not use it as to offend anyone who is actually gay. It isn't usually used in a way that is meaning a sexual orientation. But it is also used in a derogatory way to speak of gay people. I'm ok with it- i'm down I will help pay- I've got five on it. Get comfortable/help yourself- what's mine is yours a group of ppl- you all,y'all,more southern or redneck pronounced "yaw-ll" Chicken scratch-sloppy hand writing Doing ok- finer than frog hair, looking down at the dirt instead of up at it. Crappy/junk- "that is garbage" I think this is like rubbish for you guys. Relax-hang out,chill, chillax Understand,agree,follow someone's train of thought-word,i hear ya,i feel ya, i am picking up what you are throwing down Working hard- busting my ass
Eegit - idiot/ silly person. Like, you are an awful eegit meaning you did something stupid
Banjaxed - broken, buggered
Away on - go away
Come here to me - a phrase you use to get someone's attention before you say something important "come here to me, your dads in hospital"
Craic - as in, having the craic, that's some craic, means fun times or bad times depending on the context of the conversation.
Culchie - country person
Millie - skanky adidas wearing girl who likely got pregnant at 12
Spide - the male equivalent of above
Mam/ da - mum and dad
Diddies - breasts
Dump (taking one) - going for a poo
Fuck - we use it every other word in normal speech. It's not offensive. The more you use it the more interested/ passionate you are in the topic.
Insulting people - I love this. When I go on holidays people think we hate each other but the more an Irish insults you the more we like you. If you get called a cunt it is the only one that goes both ways though - either we love you or hate you!
Footering - wasting time, fidgeting, "stop footering with the remote"
Hammered - very drunk
Aye you're wick - you're having me on
You're having me on - you are telling me an untrue story
i have to admit that when we looked for baby names we were kind of thinking maybe something Irish. I started looking at some lists and I had no idea how to even begin to pronounce some of them. I started watching tons of youtube videos of people saying Irish names and became a bit obsessed. Just blows mu mind how they look vs how they are said. Man if an American moved there to teach school. They would be so screwed their first day.

saralcat I must admit, I used to a lot of Geordie speak in day-to-day. Must be because I grew up watching 'Auf Wiedersehen, Pet' lol.
But yeah I'll often say things like "where're you gannin?" or "haddaway and bollocks, man" or "divn't".
gingerdreadman, it's been going around FB recently that an American show tried to have a Geordie character ('geordie' refers to someone from the north east of England, like saralcat) and got it really, awfully, terribly wrong lol. Here's a clip:
And here's what an actual Geordie sounds like (NSFW language but I love this guy ha):
