Where I come from, we have our own language, our own dialect

I live in Cork, in southern Ireland. Cork is the second largest city, and the largest county.

Here in Cork, we speak our own sort of language. Lol not really, but we like to say we do, to people from other counties.

We have a lot of slang that we use.

I am from the north side of the city.

There is a huge war between north and south siders.

We think south siders are snobs, and they think us north siders are loud and brash.

Anyway, back to our language and dialect.

The south siders speak with a posh accent, while us north siders are more down to earth.

I love living on the north side, the people living on the north side are the salt of the earth.

You couldn’t meet nicer if you tried!

I find that people on the north side, neighbours, would do anything to help their neighbors out.

I know from friends of mine who live on the south side, that that sorta thing just doesn’t happen on the south side.

Also our slang is unique.

Like, for an example, we say “I will yeah”, when asked to do something for someone, and “I will yeah” actually means no I won’t!

Lol! 😃

We also always say hi boy or hi girl, when greeting someone!

Or we’ll say, how are you boy? How are you girl?

People from other places find it difficult to understand our sing song accent, at the best of times.

I am proud to be from Cork! I love my city, and I love where I live!
