Re mutual incomprehension due to regional accents: there was a TV gardening co-production between RTE and BBC NI some years ago. Part of it dealt with school gardens (or were they community gardens?) in the course of which locals and local children were interviewed. The Beeb provided subtitles for the Cork and Dublin episodes and RTE for the Belfast ones. They were needed!

If you are at all interested in history, stick with this - if only to find out what a sagger is. By the end you will understand why we moved here (and have no intention of returning) The only thing I miss is the Staffordshire Oatcake, lovely with 'bacun 'n' chays'. Laughing

Are they all inbred or what? Subtitles required for definite.

Sue, thank you for posting that link to the Potteries dialect video. My Head of Dept when I was at art college was from the potteries and some of the voices in the film took me right back. He was a lovely, gentle man and it was so good to hear those sounds again.
I spent a week in the Potteries in 1974 when my then wife was at an OU summer school In Newcastle-under-Lyme. I was happy as a pig in **** exploring the 5 towns. Visited Wedgewoods and a very very new Gladstone Pottery museum. I didn't need a phrase book, either! Fascinating place - though I can see why you prefer Fermanagh.

I'm glad someone liked it. It brought back memories for me too.

You certainly would not recognise the place now. I don't and I used to live there! Newcastle is my home town. It is not part of the Potteries, but when I say I'm from Newcastle, everyone thinks I'm a Geordie. It's just easier to say I'm from Stoke.

Newcastle is a very old town - it goes back to Roman times. The Potteries are relatively new. 250 years ago the SIX towns were just a collection of houses with kilns, chapels and pubs on a ratio of about 6:1:3. Not much changed there then.

I spent a lot of time looking around Newcastle, too and I saw lots of Roman stuff. But it's so loooong ago now the details are hazy - like the Stoke sky!

Used to work with a guy who grew up in Leek. He said he could remember, as a child, his mother checking the wind direction before she hung out the washing.
Nowadays we worry about 'particles' of pollution, then it was soot like snow flakes. Shocked It's a lot cleaner now - but still a 'Dirty old town'.

No - read the post again. This is just the reason I say I'm from Stoke.

Newcastle UNDER LYME Staffordshire not Newcastle ON TYNE. Wake up at the back there! Laughing

"Who shall have a fishy on a little dishy when the boat comes in?" So you don't eat fishy on a dishy in LYME then?

I'm awake alright but I think anyone would have thought you meant Newcastle upon Tyne.

Quare lucky we only correspond in writing, we wouldn't have a chance face to face!

No - I told you - we eat Oatcakes - Staffordshire ones!

If you look on a map, Newcastle, Staffs is to Newcastle on Tyne what The Burren is to Bundoran - MILES apart, (in more ways than one)

But you never said Newcastle, Staffs. just Newcastle. As for oatcakes, people move around and if they are that much of a delicacy then they are surely available in supermarket chains, which you could feasibly have purchased in Tyneside when you didn't live there......

There is a Newcastle in Tipperary, Limerick and Wexford too.

Don't you take the name of my father's town in vain, Wigtix, or I'll get the language police to lock you in a room and play this at you, full volume, for 24 hours!
