I wonder if Irish accent can be transmited when you learn English in an Irish school... I spent four wonderful years at the Dublin School in Barcelona, where 90% of the teachers are irish. So maybe my (horrible) English accent has some Irish notes in it.

Obviously all of this is simply a reduction, the fact is that there aren't true accents. It's almost impossible to have a pure accent, for there are many variables that must be taken into account. In non-english speaking countries, popular music, teacher's accent and your own experience has a lot to do with that.

Anyway, I like Irish people in general, so maybe there's an accent (one that isn't spoken), after all.
