Just watched last night's "National Treasure" on Channel 4. Fantastic performances from both Robbie Coltrane and Julie Walters.

Just like the rich variations in every part of this island, there is no such thing as a Tyrone accent except to those who live outside the county. I don't think there is any county small enough to have a single, distinct and characteristic accent.
I always find it annoying when people try to generalise a Counties accent, as you say there are too many variations within each county. There is a big difference in a Strabane accent and a Ballygawley accent. Nobody around Strabane or that oart of the county would say 'cyar' or 'Throne'.
Does anyone around there say cutties and coddies anymore?
Ah at the dentist
Eh everywhere else
Would you say there's eh cat?
shud that not be "there's eh ceht"
Actually now that I think about it thats how Carrickmore people say it
Loved Roald Dahl, but didn't care for either movie version. Hear no Evil, and Blazing Saddles were quality. His facial expressions were priceless.
'Stranger Things' is really floating my boat at the minute.
Quantum Leap was brilliant back in the day. Hope the movie does it justice.
I think it is a very sophisticated strategy. They get the Tyrone to do all the talking. Then when they win the match they will all go ha ha ha.Kerry and Mayo fans getting a bit ratty at the prospect of Tyrone joining them at the big table and possibly usurping them when it comes to taking Dublin.
I don't think so - seems to be 90% Tyronies in this thread, very little cockiness in Mayo about this one.
The Mayo crowd are fierce quiet alright.
They are that cocky they don't even think it's worth talking about.
The result is a foregone conclusion.
Which is pretty disrespectful to Tyrone if you ask me.
Waiting in the Long Grass!
