Irish-English, also known as Hiberno-English was brought to Ireland after the Norman invasion in 1169. At this time Ireland had one king ruling over many clans and was an entirely Gaelic-speaking kingdom.
Following the invasion and subsequent occupation, English became prevalent, especially in the Dublin region known as The Pale which continued to speak English thereafter.
The Irish way with words is frequently described as one of the sexiest accents in the world.
Southern Irish is thought of as charming, jolly, and engaging by other native English speakers. Northern Irish sounds more subdued to the same ears.
Michael McIntyre’s hilarious sketch on accents describes the difference perfectly. Sound good? Voquent is here as an Irish voice actor agency to provide for all your needs, be it voice actor or even transcription for those tricky words.
