    Origins of the Irish language and accent

    The English language arrived in Ireland at the time of the Norman Invasion in around the 12th century, but at that time it was only spoken by a minority of people living around the city of Dublin.

    However, by the 16th century, England had conquered the Irish and colonised Ireland. This led to the majority of Irish people speaking English as a first or second language. Written English in Ireland is much the same as standard British English, but spoken dialects have some differences and regional dialects sound very different.

    There are five main dialects of Irish-English and these are:

    • Ulster English – This is a dialect that is spoken in the province of Ulster. It has influences from Scotland because Scottish settlers came to Ulster in the 1600s.
    • West and South West Irish English – This is an accent with a high pitched sound and it can be heard by people living in the areas of Cork and Kerry.
    • Local Dublin English – This is an accent from Dublin. Vowel sounds in this accent are made into two syllables instead of one. It is said to be the working class accent of Irish- English.
    • Non Dublin English – This is said to be a more cultured accent and comes from Eastern Ireland. It was seen as the fashionable way to speak by young Dubliners and is said to be a less ‘irish’ way of speaking.
    • Supraregional Southern Irish English – This is an accent that is carried through Southern Ireland. Some of the pronunciation appears to have an American influence and it is an accent that has appeared fairly recently, since the 1980s
    The English-Irish language has loan words from the Irish language (Gaelic) and there are influences in some words from Old and Middle English. To hear English spoken with an Irish accent listen to this You Tube Interview with Daniel O’Donnell, you’ll notice that the interviewer has also got an accent, he’s from New Zealand.

    Fantastic to work with

    The team at Matinée are fantastic to work with. They are really communicative, helpful and turned around the work as quickly as possible. I have no complaints at all and we will definitely be getting back in contact when we next need subtitles.

    The Big Word

    Friendly and efficient service

    The speed of response, and friendly, efficient service from all staff was quite exceptional. Matinee particularly stands out by putting the customer’s needs first, even when the job is relatively small and a bit of a technical challenge. I would strongly recommend Matinee for any subtitling work.
