I find quite interesting the spelling of some words on the subtitles, to reflect the irish pronunciation.
That brings to mind a Glaswegian bbc3 presenter I am unable to understand: after any musical performance she shouts "this is a grit binned" or something like that. Embarrassing.

Not sure if one particular word is pronounced that way in an Irish accent or if it's a euphemism. It was certainly pronounced like that in Father Ted and didn't seem to cause offence on TV, whereas if it had been pronounced in its more English Anglo-Saxon form it surely would have, especially from a drunken priest!

You sure she's not condemning the performance such that it should be grit binned?

Might be... I just press "start" on the cd player, whenever she starts talking. Nothing against accents (you should hear mine...), but not on bbc3. I simply cannot get what she says, names of the band, titles... nothing. It sounds like she impersonating a Glaswegian, exaggerating her accent.
