Time for a light-hearted thread.
We live on an island with a range of accents that is surprisingly diverse for a population of only 6 million. Of course there are supposedly many countries with a wide variety of accents and it may be just us who notice the variations.
My favourite is the Cork accent, its very sing-song and finishes with cool endings like "bai" or "kedd", as opposed to Dublin's "loike". I've noticed that accents tend to get deeper as you go further north, with Cork's accents being very high-pitched and Belfast's accent being very down beat (and not that pleasant to be fair, unlike Derry or Donegal). Dublin and "the Wesht" are somewhere in the middle (of course it depends on the person). My least favourite is probably the D4 "roight/loike" accent, it seems very put on IMO (apologies to all south Dubs).
I don't have much of an accent myself (being only mildly influenced by the "cah in the cah pahk" Drogheda accent ) but I like the huge range of accents that we have on this small island of ours. What's your favourite one, or do you like/dislike them all?
