beortnoth :

I'm writing a radio play, and my main character is from Co. Wicklow. Also, are there any quirks of Co. Wicklow speech that I need to be aware of? Any special phrases, etc? And are there any "rougher" areas in Co. Wicklow? He's based on someone I know from a large town in Wexford and I wondered how many changes I'd have to make by moving his home county a little further north.

"There is really not an ascertainable difference between the accents. There is not a difference to the scale of that between a Cork or Dublin or Kerry accent which are much stronger and more distinguishable."
deburca98 :
"Not much differance at all only that he will call wicklow, wickla"

Tragedy has once again touched the people of North Wicklow. The tragic death of two brave local fire-fighters in the line of duty, rocked a community that has seen more than its fair share of fire related deaths. Honour our Hero’s, support the call for a Fulltime Fire & Emergency Service for North Wicklow.www.wicklowfirepetition.tk
