Either that's a "no", or nobody's owning up to it. I did 2 short 'tours' in the 70's - but I doubt that counts!

For what it's worth I've always wanted to visit.  And yes I mean Northern Ireland  :)  When I was growing up as a child under 10 in the 1960's  I remember reading of and seeing images of the violence and couldn't understand the problem.  I thought all Christians believed the same.  I didn't understand the history or politics but I always instinctively felt a place for this country in my heart.  Ah well...maybe someday.  
BTW in THIS place you're NEVER alone :P

  We've cast the world, we've set the stage,
  for what could be, the darkest age...

lol ... I find both Scottish and Irish accents nearly undecipherable at times... when I watch movies I cant count how many times I've hit the rewind button "Eh?"

Otherwise, nothing wrong with Irish accents or to be ashamed of.

"I charge thee in the sight of God, who giveth life to all things, and of Christ Jesus, who before Pontius Pilate witnessed the good confession; that thou keep the commandment, without spot, without reproach, until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ: which in its own times he shall show, WHO IS THE BLESSED AND ONLY POTENTE, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS; who only hath immortality, dwelling in light unapproachable; whom no man hath seen, nor can see: to whom be honor and power eternal. Amen" (I Tim 6:13-16).

I just do not like my accent...  If I hear my voice on a video, I go straight into denial  and chant - THAT'S NOT ME !! Posted Image

Some say I do not have much of an accent, because my accent is not strong, many of my American friends who have heard me on the phone say the love it and can make me out clear as a bell...  ...    I guess if I lived in the heart of Belfast  or Dublin  I would have a stronger accent...  !!

lol... now thats being silly really, an Irish accent strong or weak is not to be ashamed of.  :yes:

"I charge thee in the sight of God, who giveth life to all things, and of Christ Jesus, who before Pontius Pilate witnessed the good confession; that thou keep the commandment, without spot, without reproach, until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ: which in its own times he shall show, WHO IS THE BLESSED AND ONLY POTENTE, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS; who only hath immortality, dwelling in light unapproachable; whom no man hath seen, nor can see: to whom be honor and power eternal.
