Worst Irish accents in the movies, #7

Half a century old now, but never fails to please.

Thanks to hunter4086 for the memory of the Little People.


  1. I think Sean Connery might have been better concentrating on the grass cutting. Did you watch that clip? His shirt beautifully pressed throughout, wiping the sweat from his brow after two strokes of the scythe. But the title of "Darby O'Gill and the Little People" should have given me the clue.

  2. And the young lady kept forgetting which accent she was on.

  3. @A. - Of course I watched the clip. Would I put something up, even in the pub, without reviewing it? I owe my loyal following at least that much. Better than that, I saw the movie. Are you saying that a pressed shirt gives away that he isn't really Irish? Huh? :)

    @Sheila - Well, they are both Scots so what do you expect for Irish accents? At least you agree with me that they are terrible. :)


You must be at least minimally sober to comment!
