    I think you're mixing up South Dublin and London accents

    A lot of people in here seem very confused. A few teenagers engaging in a bit of roughhousing on holidays and some jealous people think it’s some sort of attack on the working classes. Boys will be boys, lads.

    A post that smacks of ignorance and bitterness, a broadside as dirty as the inner lining of your “ballon-seat” trousers, N.

    The worst these boys are guilty of is being “reckless”, in that they are swimming while intoxicated.

    I’m not sure if it’s that people on here have issues with the fact the guys are having a bit of, mostly, harmless “fun” or if it’s because they’re doing it in an athletic capacity. More jealousy perhaps?

    I don’t know what bog hole you crawled out of, N, but I’d suggest you get yourself back down there lest you make yourself look like more of a fool.

    Are you up in north county Dublin, yourself? Perhaps one of the spot that reeks of old vegetables, you know, where they grow the sprouts? Might disguise your own fetid “musk”.

    You do get a lot of “begrudgery” coming down from there.

    Shocked by the level of personal abuse in this post !

    What is a ballon-seat trousers ?....I am not acquainted with that item of apparel....maybe it's a fashion item in your neck of the woods ??

    I have no problem with goys having a bit of fun...but find the whole rugby head culture....people being "Legends" Dudes sitting around a pool in Asia roaring out "Rock Chants" seems very elitist to this poster ...as for goys jetting out to Japan for a bit of "Cornage" that is plain disrespectful.

    Thats my point pilgrim .......which I am entitled to make and without the foul personal abuse you have seen fit to use.

    M'Kay ?

    They do literally get way with murder TBF.
    A seven-week trial did nothing to establish how Brian Murphy was killed in a savage and drunken attack, his father claimed today.

    Denis Murphy, whose 18-year-old son was kicked and beaten to death outside a Dublin nightclub said the trial had left him with “more questions than answers” as he spoke for the first time about the devastating impact his son’s death has had on his family.

    Didn’t three of them get convicted for it? One got most of the blame as the others, one in particular, “turned” on him. I believe he was from Monaghan or some other godawful place.

    There was a fourth lad who got let go due to someone saying he was wearing a blue shirt when, in actual fact, it was grey.

    Either way, there were a lot more than four of them involved. They were the ones who “got away” with it but that was due to cowardice on their part.

    I’m guessing you ‘literally’ bleed blue and white and love to get a ‘Rock chant going.

    The lads in that clip on Twitter probably weren’t even born when Brian Murphy was killed.

    The accent is a bit painful but it's not a patch on PJ Gallaghers one, he's torture to listen to on the radio.

    No you are most definitely wrong. I actually quite like culchies, I have slowly come to accept them over time. It is not really a chip on the shoulder type of thing.

    But McCreavy was overlooked with the decentralisation plan, very unfortunate for everyone really.

    As I said culchies are fine, it is the climbing, settling ones that move up to the big smoke, they are the problem, they are the ones that phucked everything up.

    It is all their fault in fairness, their school choices are elementary after that.

    You really should not be giving RTE any credit for the accent, you're reaching too far there pal. Giving RTE credit for anything is not advised, they really don't deserve it.

    As I said the accent was developed by ambitious young female culchie types, who wanted rich husbands.

    It's 2019, there's about 200 different nationalities in this country and most of them in Dublin yet you're bladdering on about culchies like it's still 1985 when there was nobody else here.

    I’m fairly certain most people from Dublin put on their accent, no matter what side of the socio-economic divide they’re on.

    Blackock boys certainly dont put it on. The natural, genuine Rock accent, is perfectly good, and is indeed very characteristic of that school, and does also convey an authority, distinction, education level, and leadership character, that defines them as men of the highest quality.
    Its when others ape it, and just dont manage it, that the poor and flawed effort, combined with them not being really that class of person in the first place, clearly comes off as fake or wannabe, and has the offputting effect that tends to be referred to and charicatured as a D4 accent. But very different to the pure or authentic Blackrock college accent.

    “Fairly certain” is used all the time, what are you on about. I’m almost definitely sure you’re talking out of your hole.

    I'm 'Fairly Certain' there will be a mod action in the offing if you don't tone down the rhetoric & insults.

    Change the accents in that video to that of lads from de flats or ballyer and you’d see those defending these clowns banging a very different drum.


  • Registered Users Posts: 625 ✭✭✭dd973


    Those posh schools and latent homosexuality eh?


  • Registered Users Posts: 10,354 ✭✭✭✭EmmetSpiceland


    Some amount of resentment and jealousy in this thread. It’s utterly pathetic.

    I can tell you this, if any of you were face to face with the lads in that clip you’d be singing from a different “hymn sheet”. That’s for sure.

    It’s all so easy to “have a go” when you’re poured into a chair, hiding behind a computer screen.

    What have these kids done?

    If it was a bunch of kids from Kildare shouting about savage crack or kids from Dublin 1 shouting about a deadly buzz it would be completely innocent and fun and so is this!

    “Savage cabbage” is another one they like to shout. Country people, I mean.
