    I’m Northern Irish and we have quite a few accents but you’d probably have to be from here to notice the subtle differences. We are somewhat a mixture of the Irish and Scottish accent, I used to dislike it but have really grown to appreciate it as I get older 💚

    Leftover Kerry accents in my family and a lot of those who live around me in my New England town. Still can tell what church you belong to on whether you say Aitch or Haitch for the letter H. When we talk to each other outsiders scratch their heads.

    I didn't understand half of the things he said, even without the harsh accents :'D
    In my opinion, as a non native English speaker, a south British accent is more desirable (and more understandable)

    And go into the northside into the mansions of Skerries, Malahide, Howth, Clontarf, Castleknock etc and you'll find some of the poshest Dublin accents imaginable but don't bother being accurate when trying to describe accents and just go off some ancient stereotypes that are outdated today

  • Justin

    Like the accent he claims applies to the southside barely even applies for half the southside, go into D8, D10, D12, D20, D22 and they all speak like the so called northside accent

    This video is fucking dreadful, I can't imagine this fella has actually been to south dublin much if he thinks thats the way we speak here, I reckon the people in Clondalkin, Tallaght, Ballyfermot, Drimnagh, Crumlin etc would like to have a word with you

    I'm from Northern Ireland, we're a separate country from Ireland but still counted as ireland. Im in belfast (the capital city) and there is so much to do! There is the science museum W5, SSE arena, titanic quarter and more. Titanic quarter has a building called "titanic" it is the front of the titanic turned into a building, and it's a museum, we have lots of museums.

    It's mostly just a south Dublin accent everywhere actually. Outside of the working classes and farmers.
    Look up Supraregional Irish English. That's what happens when one part of the country (South Dublin, RTÉ) is overrepresented in the national media and television.

    • Justin

      What the fuck are you talking there is no south dublin accent, it varies from the likes of Tallaght and Crumlin to the east side like D4 and D6, likewise many parts of the northside have that so called south dublin accent, Skerries, Malahide etc, get a grip you tool

    Mate born and raised in Southern Ireland THE MOTHER COUNTRY
    Now Northern Ireland tis part of Britain
    So it’s kinda Britain instead but on Ireland
    If you wanna know why look up Irish history
    Our language was almost extinct
    Okay tis positively possible
    For ye te have a cork accent a Carlow accent a Boris accent and a limerick accent mixed
    Cause when I ain’t recording me voice with me I’m ado a normal Irish accent from Carlow
    When I’m at school I use a borris Mixed with a Carlow and cook accent
    So I talk fast high and kinda like I’m on drugs

    You all sound beautiful to me and I live near Toronto, Canada. I have a boring accent, in which is nothing at all to me. Someone from Dublin wrote "What's cracking", I thought it was cute.

    I'm here cause some guy had the MOST BEAUTIFUL accent but I couldn't put my finger on it. I asked him and he said "Irish" and I was like: WHAT? He didn't SOUND irish. But then I come to this video and I low-and-behold he's probably from south (edit: south Dublin) Ireland.
