ya, a girl i work with is from there. it sounds like she's trying to talk with a brick lodged in her throat. people from wexford should be rounded up and put in "correction camps" where the accent is beat out of them with big sticks.

My mum is from Wexford but has lost her accent completely, until she starts talking with her family, it takes a stupid amount of time for her to stop saying 'Shuure listen lyads...'

Do the words "legend" and "savage" to express enthusiasm originate from Wexford?

These have been cropping up everywhere over the last year.

Every time i see it written I think of RTCs and thick ankled girls

I'm a little unnerved

I used to go out with a girl from Wexford. After we broke up she was still angry with me but nonetheless we went for taco's one night and ended up sleeping together.


It was Tex-Mex Vexed Wex ex sex.

i was born in 1975 and lived in co. wexford from 75-76 and 78 to 87.

the one uniquely co. wexford word i can come up with is
' QUARE ' - which means very.
e.g. - " he's a quare big eejit. "

i gave up using the word after i left co.wexford and the only people i know who use it are from the south east. including my relatives from new ross.

Man, New Ross, is Kavanaghs still on that corner when you go over the bridge from Rosbercon direction? I love that shop, you could get your milk, fake barbies and an Elvis chord and lyrics book all in one go.

still there. No longer owned by Dan Kavanagh.
Previously called Nestors [up till around 1979]

Around the corner is Richie's. The pub that I wasted my youth in.

I had my first ever drink there with my irresponsible uncle! Did you know Quinn's bakery? Down on Priory street?
