You’ve probably noticed from my accent that I’m not American nor British. There are other countries where we speak this language natively.
I'm a native English speaker with a southern Irish accent. If you are curious whether my accent is typically “Irish” here’s some background on my accent. But first let me offer one caveat - there are lots of different ways Irish people speak English not just the ones you hear from Hollywood.
Listening to how I speak, very few Irish people can identify where I'm from or where I've lived in Ireland. This is because my accent is a mixture of Irish elements and not just a Dublin, Galway or Kerry accent. Though, if I had to describe mine it's more of an urban Leinster accent than anything else.
