    Playing devil's advocate here, but are they really different? Especially to somebody who doesn't live in either place? e.g. Is Derry any different from Donegal? Or Cavan from Fermanagh, Dundalk from Newry? To someone who doesn't live here, (and maybe even to those who do) it might be like trying to explain the difference between Kansas and Missouri to an Irish person.
