Top Ten Tuesday-Worst Irish Accents

For this edition of Top Ten Tuesday I while list the 10 worst Irish accents. What's that you say? How can I have such a short list? Fair point but let's see what you think of my choices:

1. D4 accent - You know the one. That pseudo-American crap that these crazy "fockers" speak. Ross O'Carroll Kelly has these guys down 100 per cent, roysh!
2. The Moore Street accent - 'Fire Lirers, five forrah powind!' Those street traders will do your head in.
3. Dublin scumbag accent - 'Ya f*ckin' startin' on me are ya, ya bleedin' muppah!' This accent is said in a very high pitched tone. Dogs must really hate this one.
4. Kerry accent - Seriously, what are these people saying? Enunciate!
5. Donegal accent - Again, this one is very hard to decipher!
6. Ulster accent - Some of those Belfast accents are brutal! (By the way, I'm aware Donegal is in Ulster so don't bother pointing that out!)
7. Limerick accent - 'Will ye ge'way outta that like!' Well if you persist in speaking like that...
8. Cork accent - Similar to the above. This one is more snooty but it's easier to comprehend.
9. West of Ireland accent - It begins to irritate after a while!
10. Leinster accent (excluding Dublin) - That Meath accent and the one from Wicklow/Wexford can become quite annoying if you listen to it long enough!

So there you have it. Feel free to comment on my choices or to offer your own views.
