That one drives me mad.

Also norries saying "he have" instead of "he has" makes me want to give Ireland back to the British.

Well, aren't ye the right shower of pedantic snowflakes. Pardon my Hiberno-English.

Most of the samples given on this thread are not exclusive to Cork or even Ireland, never mind being restricted to the North side. I doubt if any of the posters here speak in flawless standard English with a clipped Oxford accent. Colloquial speech varies widely according to area, class and even generation in all languages.

That is just non-standard, it's not incorrect in ordinary spoken speech. We all know what is meant. That's what is important.

Nothing Norry about that expression, used in many parts of the country.

It could be said that people who don't understand that spoken language all over the world varies widely from a standard form are also a bit dim.

Now I must go off and practice my TH's in case I bump into any of you well-spoken mellifluous Procers in the Mutton.

Was it a question if there wasn't a question mark?
