I spent the 12th weekend down the Ards Penninsula, my parents live in that neck of the woods.
Love to sit in the Quays and watch the fishing boats in Portavogie harbour.

Deer Prafesser McWilliams,
Thurs nathin wrong with chip shaps. In Lorgan, Craigavin an Portydown the chip shap is akin to a kammunitie centir, so it is. So wat yer bruthur gits up ta in chippies is but anothur axpreshun af Mid Ulstur Scats kulchur. He sownds lak a Lorgan man te me.
But te return te yer slur - Ah haf te korrekt ye - we don´t hav ivverythin - we hiv nathin at awl. Ivver since the peece prowsess, yousuns in the "Ulstir Scats Kammyounitty" hav nicked all the cash for the sake of a primativ culchie dialekt an haven´t even spared a thought fir us uns who spake Mid Ulstir Scats - a proud crass-kommyounitty langwidge (which Culchie-spake isunt). Its tyme fir parity of isteam, so it is, coz thah currint situashun is pure cat.

But tha Rozzirs stole me drink
An nar Ahm in tha clink,
Smokin tha last o´me fegs.

But soon Ah´ll drown me sarra
Cuz I git me Bru tamarra
