My friends,

The Northern Irish have a unique language system that tourists often find us hard to understand, so If you ever meet someone [ like me ] who is from Belfast, you can now be well prepared, Though some you may need to ask to slow down a bit when speaking.

I moved to the mainland UK, England a good few years ago and the English still think my accent is strong Norn Irish, whilst friends back home say I'm posh Norn Irish


It was with GREAT humour that I chuckled so hard at this, given that I hadn't been back to Norn Iron for 6 years.

If you have met an Irish man, like many Scots, English and Welsh have, there may be members here that recognise it, to ones that haven't met one read it twice




I just had to share this.

Welcome to Norn Iron

The word "Mucker" originates from The Black Country (just north of Birmingham)

Yup, know the lot, it has changed a bit though. Much of it is Belfast up until the 70's speak, and all depending on where you go, you might now hear the same talk, and accent out in the sticks. The Cherryvalley crowd are still 'aboyt' though,

If Britain sent all the Southern Irish back to Eire your infrastructure would collapse.
It works both ways.

Please do not forget" What about ya?" Very unique said in a NI accent!!!

The old man was from Forkhill near Newry and I miss the soda bread when we used to vist the "foregin relatives"


You need an ear adjustment to understand everyone up there. A local dictionary might get you a pint but not a conversation!!

That could be secondhand, since it is Irish derived from a Celtic word 'Mo Cara' meaning friend.
Interesting though.

@ Cherryvalley

It is true though, your right. It seems to be used within the depths of Belfast, on the street....street talk


Must say though, my accent is more Bangor now

I'm from England, I have lived here for 53 years through everything, (as many have been lucky to do so) including being shot at, and almost blown up, and in both cases the culprit would NOT have known who I was, or just about anybody that might have been hurt. I am well accepted here in all communities, and thank God and intelligent and friendly people for that. This was a fun thread IMO, I don't know why you chose it for a beef.
Think again, my friend.
