Whenever someone says that, and they do, I always compliment them on their accent, intentionally getting the location wrong while smiling innocently.  Telling a Yorkshireman that he has a wonderful Lancashire accent is an environmentally friendly alternative fuel to heat the entire north of England in winter.

They did when I was there.

I was also on a ferry in Vancouver and I overheard someone asking his friend about my Aussie accent. His friend said I must be from the eastern part of Canada.

By Christ, I've missed this forum with posts like that. 😄

I used to have a security guard from Huddersfield - he actually booted my car when I said (due to his accent) I'd thought he was from over th'hills.

Try being an Irish-Catholic in East Leeds, mate.

Seriously. Every. Single. Woman.

One of my cousins spots a seriously hot looking woman - dressed like a stripper. He says "whaddya think?", I reply "If you don't I will", he replies back "Right. I'm in first". He walks towards her, she gives a massive grin (& I'm thinking "danggit, should've said no, mate, you're out of your weight division here by a couple of classes") - she throws her arms around him & shouts "Uncle STEEEEEVE!!!!!".

Yes. She'd been away for a few years. His niece. True story.

Meeeeeehhhh..... not really.... 😉

Ended up with the sexiest woman I've ever met. Imagine my surprise when I found out she's related to my cousin Steeeeeeve (take a breath: my grandad's little brother married her dad's older sister). I'd actually been to school with her as well - and our Irish ancestry is from the same fuc/<in' village in Mayo.

Seriously. Cannot make it up.

Actually one of the national sportscasters let slip an 'aboot' last night and her co-host teased her about it all the rest of the night. And he's always struggling to keep his Nova Scotian accent under control.

I learned that skill when I legitimately made a mistake while on holiday in the UK in about '91.  Someone asked me how we were enjoying our trip, and I said we really loved being in England.  Unfortunately, we were in Cardiff at the time.

I will cheer Jamaica on along with Ireland (Liam Kay will be playing) and I hope that Tonga take the  spoils at the end of the tournament. their games last world cup were the first internationals I've ever seen and their magical run just sticks with me. A new name to lift the trophy would be good for the game. I also know that England winning it at home would be great for the sport in the UK and for all UK leagues but Tonga is where the hearts at, my head shows that its a necessity for the UK to win for our teams to prosper.

Ok? Not sure where this is coming from? Also Ireland has only qualified for 3 soccer world cups, the last being in 2002...

Yep - remember Irelands best ever soccer result the 1994 win over Italy- out of the 13 players who played that day only 4 were Irish- the rest were British (2 Scott's and the rest English) + an English manager.

The RL team can probably beat that well known stat.
