    is after dropping Ais'

    Hello everyone,

    John Kavanagh, a famous mixed martial arts coach, writes in his book:

    "What happened next, though, was definitely unacceptable. I was sitting in my office when I heard someone outside say, ‘That fella is after dropping Ais.’ I knew straight away it was Conor, because Aisling Daly had stepped in with him after Owen. I came out of the office and saw Ais keeled over in the ring. She was in tears. Conor had hurt her with a body‑shot."

    Does "That fella is after dropping Ais'" mean "That fella has just dropped Ais'"?

    Thank you,

    Yes, if it's Irish, which it seems to be.
