    Sounds nothing like a Louth accent. The son is from Limerick according to his Facebook.

    The father sounded like someone I knew from Carlingford. But then that lad had a stammer. And a big bushy beard. Father is not from Limerick anyway. Longford maybe?

    I am from Longford as is the aul lad. It is definitely a midlands accent, but further south than Longford. Laois / Offaly I guess. More Laois than Offaly, unless you go near Ballinasloe end of Offaly.

    Its Leitrim, well at least i know the lad is from Leitrim

    OK, but I say not as far SW as Limerick, and they'd better not bring that talk over the Shannon to Ballinasloe, which is in Galway :D. Maybe some corner of Tipp?

    I know hence why I said near Balinasloe :D Have family from there. Wouldn't wish the accent on anyone!

    SureWouldntYa says the young fella is from Leitrim.

    i think it is priceless, we let our true feelings known to kin and even though he was a bit mad, he was not happy about paying for another driving test, as he said to get the same answer,

    i got the test on the second go,
    and when my older child was doing her test, she said she would not fail, and that i would be the only person in the house with a fail first time round,
    i then asked them to bet on it, and we agreed 100e,
    i went with her as far as test centre and went off down town to kill time while she was out doing her test, i did carry the 100e in my pocket hoping to be handing it over,
    but lo and behold when test was over and i asked the result, she had failed, i just put out the open palm, and took it, but i took her for lunch on it, a bet was a bet after all,
    she picked on me for a time before the test just because i failed first time round,
    i did not say anything to her after hers, i knew how she felt, i had felt the same when i failed, i hated the thought of having to go through the same thing all over again than the price of the thing,
    so i applied for it for her and in we went six months later, she did not ask to bet on it that time, at least i lost nothing on the first bet and it paid for her second test, she passed it and was happy
