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'.

Or to stretch that out, a single Irish accent.

Does anyone around there say cutties and coddies anymore?

I say cuttie all the time. When I went to college in 1998, a Donegal girl asked me to set her up with an email address. I set up hornycuttie98@xxxxxxxx.com. To my surprise, she used it. Even when she left college and was applying for jobs. She eventually found work....

Just started watching series one of 'The Trip' on Netflix. Missed it the first time around on the BBC. Enjoyable wee programme. Slow moving, 1-2-1 dialogue (basically) between the two (askewed versions) of themselves.

Crazy it was one of the headline news items on BBC One at 6pm.

Loved Roald Dahl, but didn't care for either movie version. Hear no Evil, and Blazing Saddles were quality. His facial expressions were priceless.

Roald Dahl didn't care much for it either. We can only speculate what he thought of Depp's.

'Stranger Things' is really floating my boat at the minute.

Started it last night. Two episodes in and so far I'm liking it. That 011 or "El" is an amazing wee actor for all the age of her.

Quantum Leap was brilliant back in the day. Hope the movie does it justice.

What movie? I was a major Quantum Leap fan back in the day and was one of the pathetic fools back in the 90s that wrote letters to NBC to extend the series for an extra couple of the years. I also had a Quantum Leap website. http://web.archive.org/web/20010404075306/http://www.quantumleaping.co.uk/ * I was unemployed and had nothing better to do with my time.

Didn't know there was a movie being made.

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.
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.

Waiting in the Long Grass!   ;)
