Having a lot of conversations with other westerns (english people) that go like this;
English person: “Ah yeah mate irish r’ ya, my (insert parent/grandparent) is Irish, what part?
Me: “County Cavan”
English person: Ah?
If its not Dublin or Mayo there havent heard of it. Which is fair enough I suppose. My standard response is to say, well its in the north and part of Ulster but Britian dont own it, which usually is followed up with some cheeky sparing, oh yeah didnt manage to get your hands on it did ya??? ah? ah? Hey? oh!!!
I have no idea why I do this.
