I'm originally from England but have been living in Northern Ireland (Omagh and Belfast) for the past 18 years. I'm just curious as to whether people in the south can discern between the different accents up here? I.e. Differences in Belfast accents, Derry accents, Tyrone accents (where people pronounce Car as Kyee-ar Cabbage as Kyee-abbage etc) , North Antrim accents (i.e. people like Brendan Rodgers who sound Scottish at times).
Like if someone in Dublin spoke with a thick Tyrone or Derry accent, would people figure out he was specifically from Tyrone or Derry before he announced it? Or do people think Nordie's generally sound all the same?
