“Boggers and offensive accents…”
Those are just two of the things that one Dublin woman said she associated with Cork in a rather revealing vox pop shared on YouTube this week.
Don’t hold back, love.
Inspired by this wonderful vox pop from 1984, the Entertainment.ie crew went out into the streets of the capital to find out if attitudes towards the Rebel County had matured in more than three decades.
Spoiler alert: They haven’t.
While the first woman interviewed said that, despite our offensive accents, she does pop down to Kinsale on occasion, despite having visited the city at least once, a group of youngsters said they still associate Cork with farms and a “too strong” accent they find “weird”.
Another eloquent gent admitted that when he thinks of the largest county in Ireland, his only thought is “shit weather.”
Asked if he had ever visited, the same man shook his head and said it was “too far away” for a trip.
‘Does Cork have an airport?’
Meanwhile, another geographically confused Dublin resident said he found Cork weather to be too warm for his tastes, proclaiming that we are both “too close to the Equator” and “too far from the airport”.
It wasn’t all bad, one sporty looking man said Cork people had “beautiful voices and a nice accent”.
Of all the people interviewed, only one Dub said they would consider living in Cork, but only if he won the lottery and could afford a home in Glengarriff.
Fancy subjecting yourself to the full 2.43 minutes? Here’s the video:
