How's it going my gumdrops? Hopefully, everyone is enjoying these Irish and Saint Patrick's Day themed blogs, so far. Every time I work on these blogs, I always learn something new.
Throughout these next 2 weeks, I want to do something different from the usual by exploring and sharing different topics for Song Saturday, Cartoon Sunday, and more.
Unless it is about entertainment and politics in the media, we really do NOT learn as much about Ireland. Those 2 topics are really boring and cliche, after a while. This is especially in regards to politics. I am NOT the only person, who is politically fatigued.
That's mostly why I really try my hardest NOT to be extreme about my political views and drag them into every topic, unlike most people today, AD NAUSEAM.
As I began writing these blogs last week, I stumbled upon this animated vlog about Irish accents. I have not heard many with Irish accents. Normally, I hear those with Australian, British, Mexican, Cuban, and Asian accents. There have been shows and movies, that I have watched in the past with American actors playing Irish roles.
Even though I have known for the last 30 years, that U2 is an Irish band, I never paid much attention to Bono's accent. Years ago, I did manage to hear Glenn Quinn's Irish accent. I was amazed that he was Irish because he spent 7 STRAIGHT YEARS playing as "Mark Healy" on Roseanne.

It was not until Glenn Quinn played the character, Doyle on Angel, that I learned he was Irish; When the late Glenn Quinn joined the cast as "Doyle" on Angel in 1999, his Irish accent really surprised me. This only proved, that he was a talented actor.
Since today's Cartoon Sunday blog is about Irish accents, here is an animated YouTube vlog from Facts Media LLC. explaining about the different types.
