so lacking in interest as to cause mental weariness;
"a boring evening with uninteresting people"
"the deadening effect of some routine tasks"
"a dull play"
"his competent but dull performance"
"a ho-hum speaker who couldn't capture their attention"
"what an irksome task the writing of long letters is"
"tedious days on the train"

"other people's dreams are dreadfully wearisome"
- She always speaks irksome complaints.
- It is irksome to do the same work every day for ten years.
Laws..will only seem irksome to those whose reason is dormant.出自： Isaiah Berlin
