    Yeah, this is true alright. And, all this "biy" stuff can become a bit grating after a while........ vis-a-vis the PROC site.
    On the other hand, some Cork-specific dialect usage in posting would make this forum very unique on Boards.
    I dunno!
    Maybe Rymus had the answer.......... a mixture of both.
    Interesting to see how this thing goes.

    Due to majority of people who use "Fiends" being stupid its pronounced "Feens" .

    Cork speak would be ok in moderation ;)

    A glossary might be good.

    You have a glossary, one of your mods hosts The Dictionary of Cork Slang. None of your modern rubbish. :)
