Where do you get them from tippben!
It has Northern Irish undertones in some of the language. Though I do note it is of Scottish origin.

Hav ye no heared o' th' Ulster Scots? Cum ye alang tae East Donegal and ye'll hear plenty. Or if ye want real Undertones go tae Londonderry.

There used to be an ad slogan for tourism in the NW which said 'it's different up here'.

Yeah, it was used nationally, for the Irish market; you know, those people who think anywhere north of Athlone requires snowshoes in July. But of course, a person might have to be observant to know that.

Kinda hard to be observant about a wee advertising campaign in Ulster when one is living on foreign shores for nearly three decades prior to 2000. Am I forgiven for not being observant enough now?
