VIDEO: Irish people rate attempts at the Irish accent

Being Irish, you put up with a lot of people approaching you and attempting to do an Irish accent.

Let’s be honest, most people completely fail.

Plenty of actors have tried it and most, if not all have been awful (we’re looking at you Gerard Butler).

But now YouTube channel Facts have released a video of Irish people rating attempts at the Irish accent.

None of them are very impressive and as one person in the video says - if you can’t do an accent don’t attempt it.

And how did "how now brown cow" become the archetypal Irish phrase?
