Ok so I was born and raised in Northern Ireland but my parents moved to New castle (England) when I was 11 and my accent is actually the weirdest... you don't meet many northern Irish Geordies.. So I was wondering what's the weirdest and most unusual accent you have heard?

I don't think so. Just imagine a female version of ant and dec combined with someone from northern Ireland with a strong accent

To be honest it's not my accent I hate it's more the fact that the Irish language is different to the English so I need to reword everything I say or repeat everything so people know what I'm saying

My uncle is a geordie but moved to Australia in his 20s. He sounds mostly Australian but every now and then he goes a bit geordie and it does sound pretty funny.

Defo Northern Ireland, had a job interview in Belfast and I honestly couldn’t understand 75% of what people were saying.

Aye, it does sound as if it's funny when his true Geordie comes out to play

I lived with someone from burnley once, His accent was so strong and strange ( nothing like anything ive heard then and since ), i honestly didn't think he was speaking english to me or was from england... I spent most the year, barely understanding anything he said. ( his accent was STRONG, he had a deep voice, and Coughed and Hmmm'ed/made noise mid speech a lot = Not english for me. everyone else from the north of england understood him like he was speaking english, for me he was speaking klingon )

First meeting went: ***couldn't understand his name ***
where are you from ?
Burnley
Burma ?
burnley
burma??
burnley
Friend interject... burnley. The people around me hasdto pretty my dicepher what he said to me the first 3 weeks of living together.

Great guy, but the thick burnley accent, to a londoner, isnt even understandable .
