I've heard Irish people that I thought were American. Some parts of Ireland maybe? Also have read that the NY accent was heavily influenced by Irish immigrants.
 Quoting: INK3


Boston too.

Last time I was over I thought I may as well have stayed at home, Irish bars full of people speaking like Irish all with Irish names.

Fucking disgusting Guinness though. >.<

i understand why Galway has been treated with derision by other Irish ive met in the past
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 32834583


That's just jealousy because Galway is such an awesome party town full of hot students, drugs and music.

Galways is like the Bohemian capital of Ireland, we're neck deep in poets and artists and musicians and shit.

So yeah, it can get pretty pretentious at times but trust me, if you're at a party in Ireland... the last man standing is gonna be from Galway.

Also where I live is a haunt for celebrity types from all over the world because nobody gives a fuck who they are.

Quentin Tarintino once had a beer in my local all by himself, no entourage or whatever and people were like "who's the loner in the corner?"

"Oh it's yer man who did Pulp Fiction... anyway is anyone playing darts or what?"

If that was Dublin, poor fucker would have been swamped by assholes.
 Quoting: Lucky Charms

Yes i must admit i loved that about Ireland you can be who you are without the pretensions fakery.England is wall to wall wannabes and xfactor chavs.When i went to Ireland i stayed near killarney but spent most time driving to the beach around the Dingle peninsula loved it was feckin expensive though till i realised id picked the tourist pubs i have to say fish and chips was shite even f***** LIDL was expensive lol we stayed in a caravan for cheapness the mother in law wanted to get in touch with her IRISH side 1doh1 half of my town in merseyside has Irish anscestory but i imagine youd get pissed off after a while with all these geneology anoraks comin over "Hello im your 4th cousin removed on your great uncle Conchobars side

I just tell them outrageous lies.

My favourite one is that leprechauns were invented in the 50s to boost tourism.

I also like to feed them BS about their "Irish family" like how 100 years ago their ancestors were well known sheep thieves and it's better not to mention the family name as "grudges last a long time over here."

everybody in Australia talks pretty much the same, there aren't huge differences like regional dialects or accents.

the only people who talk different are immigrants, but their children end up sounding just like all the other Australians.

Its sad in a way lol because people need to chase this romantic myth of being something else.I got wise to this very early on and promptly gave up the 'Irish roots fantasy'.But alas i loved it over there and we had to keep up the bullshit for her dear old mum walking round boring grey graveyards near Kilmacow in pissing down rainwall lol.In Killarney Americans with money to burn swallowed every 'Oh Danny Boy'pill in every friggin pub with some bored shitless Irish lad whos seen it a 1000 times before.I hate obviously commercial aspects of tourism and tourist areas so I spent my time as a beach bum in the lovely Atlantic ocean

The bloody English!
I don't know if fags took over the country
hundreds of years back, but they all sound fruity.

Researchers in the early twentieth century went
into the backwoods of Appalachia in the most isolated
regions, and found people who still spoke the dialects
and accents that their ancestors brought over from
England, and it wasn't ANYTHING like how the English
sound today.

Sounded sort of a cross between Boston and
the Beverly Hillbillies. Very weird, but at least
not fruity tooty sounding.

Glasgow...definitely. When I met a man from Glasgow while visiting the UK, I felt awful because I barely could understand one word out of fifteen. I had to ask someone else to help me out, because there was clearly a communication barrier!

Some Brooklyn accents can be a little intense depending on what part of Brooklyn and heritage, I admit that having grown up there. My accent isn't thick, but my father sounds like Joe Pesci at times. lmao

Queens accents can be just as bad, at times, too. All the boroughs, actually. Except Manhattan. hf

Horrendous.
And the LORD spake, saying, "First shalt thou take out the Holy Pin, then shalt thou count to three, no more, no less. Three shall be the number thou shalt count, and the number of the counting shall be three. Four shalt thou not count, neither count thou two, excepting that thou then proceed to three. Five is right out. Once the number three, being the third number, be reached, then lobbest thou thy Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch towards thy foe, who being naughty in My sight, shall snuff it." Amen.
