How’s the craic? (How’s the crack?)

I just watched the movie The Foreigner where Jackie Chan faced off with Pierce Brosnan. The latter played the role of the Deputy First Minister of Northern Ireland with his authentic Irish brogue. Actually I googled that piece of information. Brosnan is originally from Ireland though his British accent as James Bond was convincing enough for me. I don’t want to dwell on the movie’s plot. What caught my attention was the Irish accent which is nasal and has a smoky lilt to it that kept me wanting for more. Which reminded me of Merida and her cohort in Pixar’s animated movie Brave. And talented actress Saoirse Ronan (pronounced as Ser-sha like inertia). And Ed Sheeran too. So I ended up YouTubing more of the Irish accent. So how's the craic?

There's been lots of Irish accents floating around TV and the movies lately. The Netflix hit Peaky Binders has a slew of them. My husband is watching that series but it is way too violent for me. Lots of Northern Irish accents in that one though.

@sol_cee Actually it's Peaky Blinders and it's on Netflix. Very excellent but a little violent for me.

Sounds like a movie I would like to watch. I also enjoy Irish accents, I used to work in a multi cultural company and the receptionist was Irish. I am also watching nowadays the Outlander on Netflix, and the Scottish accent fascinates me.

I remember Saoirse from the movie "Hanna"-because of her accent(s) in that, I really had no idea she was Irish/American. I remember being a little surprised by Brosnan being Irish as well, because in movies like the Lawnmower Man his accent was convincing, and other roles...then seeing him in an interview, well, it was interesting. I am not really one to talk about accents though, because sometimes ppl ask me what country I was born in and what my first language was and I have to tell them uh I was born here.

While I have no problems understand British accent, it's hard for me to understand Irish accent. I usually watch the movies in Italian or in French, those are the versions available here.

We surrounded by the Irish for several months this year and I loved their way with words and their accents. The accents did vary a lot and some I really had trouble understanding.
