I remember being at a concert in Coughlan’s on Douglas Street and Melojian was the warm-up artist. When he came to pronouncing the name of the venue, he said that (in Cork) 'ye say Coughlan' [caw-lan] and (in not Cork) ‘we say Coughlan’ [cock-lin] and wondered why. Someone in the audience quickly responded that ‘You’re wrong’ – enough was said.
Committee is another pronunciation that is somewhat particular to Cork.
Also in Cork, there are Rice Krispie Cakes – there are no Rice Krispie Buns that exist elsewhere.
A few weeks ago, I was watching the Great Irish Bake Off and was surprised by the Battenburg that they were requested to bake – square in profile with four coloured squares. I can only suspect that there are no Cork participants because they would have baked a cake of triangular profile with three tapering layers.
With thanks to KH for capturing the correct profile on camera…..
