I think it's *feckin' eejit". That's the opinion of one Canadian whose only claim to knowledge on the subject is that she has some Irish relatives (and a few friends).

Both terms work and are used. 'Feckin' eejit' is more a southern term...#AskMrsBrown: Your Questions Answered!...1 min. 54 sec.

'Friggin' eejit' is more a northern term.....so in an effort of cross community...mix'n'match.

The predicate verb or adjectve is less important than the noun in this case. Big, wee, bloody, stupid, etc., etc.,...in this case, friggin' and feckin' both mean the same thing.
