Talk to Linda, she lives on the Green Isle, but I dunno about Northern Ireland.

Hi B.

I'm from Belfast - lived there the first 25 years of my life (apart from student years in a certain city spanning the River Foyle!). Now, however, I live in Finland and have done so for the past 5 years.

Still pop back to Norn Irn' every now and then.

I'm from Co. Down originally but have been living in Scotland for nearly 30 years. Seeing finnguy's reference to Norn Irn' reminded me of John Pepper's column in the 'Telegraph' about the Ulster language. I still have 5 of his books including the 'Illustrated Encyclopaedia of Ulster Knowledge' and the 'Ulster Haunbook'.
