    We pronounce Briquette like 'Brick-it'

    Would have dealt with a lot of Hotels and B&B's in one job I was in, aaaaand Salthill-Knocknacarra accent sounds like a posh Dubliner, aaand down Gort side and further down that direction sounds very ehm erhm, shall we just say "rough" lol. :o:pac: (No reflection on the area I'm just giving my judgement on the accent sounds.) Connemara and out in the Islands ALL sound American even though they've lived there all their lives! I'll try to think of a few more....

    (No offence intended here btw, the question was asked and I'm just answering it! :) )
