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!!


You must have missed Kilkeel then, I still have trouble there, always hoping to say 'Yes' and 'No' appropriately in reply.

Yes the grandparents moved to Warrenpoint and we used to stay at Cranfield House just outside Kilkeel. I used to put on my best accent as my normal one would not be welcome in Kilkeel!!!!

It's a small world alright, Cranfield House's chef, is someone I'm well acquainted with.
The hotel is gone now though.

Just saw this thread and because I'm a Belfast man orginally (Donegal Road - now reside in Carrick) I had to post in it! Surry, a min pos an et. (that'll confuse the foreigners!) I've got friends from England and Romania and I find I have to speak like an 'Inst boy' when I talk to them otherwise they can't understand me. When me and local friends go into Ulster-Scots (with a hint of Gaelic thrown in) it's a hoot to see their faces! But then they start to speak Romanian in retaliation.

arite ni, haf ta go.

Thought of another phrase or two:

bout ye can be used instead of bout ya (depends on where you live)

dray yer ise (dry your eyes) - please stop complaining

a whey on - I don't believe you

ganching - constantly talking, but not making any sense (to do this is to be a ganch)

wurse - where is, as in 'wurse ma cyar?' (I'm sure I left my car here)

Ha ha, I love this one. I still use that here in Yorkshire, get some interesting looks hey



dray yer ise (dry your eyes) - please stop complaining


lol, also goes with " Wind yer neckin "


a whey on - I don't believe you


Stickin OUT!!!


Incidently, I have heard people say " Stickin OUT Jonty " lol


ganching - constantly talking, but not making any sense (to do this is to be a ganch)


I had never heard of this one. Must be an old 60's/70's era?

Has " Our Kid " been mentioned? Goes well with " Whata Boutye Our Kid "


Cheers,

Be safe be well,

Spiro
