I think it's a shame, because the Irish accent is cute and I never understand why people are trying to deny their origins by losing their accent.
I don't think she ever had that strong of an Irish accent though. Ali and Bono don't, at least not to me (I'm not at all Irish). I thought I remember reading that people from their area don't typically have the strong Irish accents.

My mom's younger sister has four kids and my uncle was in the military so they moved all over. In that family I have four cousins and they each speak differently because of where they grew up, and incidentally the cousin that's my age has no real accent at all because she moved around so much at an impressionable age. You can't really peg her as Midwest or NY or southern or California.

yeah i read about that years ago!

Because I had Afican-Americans friends decades back in the past who's parents, or grandparents came up from The South- they would sometimes speak in that lilt. Plus on a certain bus if i was on it
on a Sunday the older ladies from one of the mostly black church would ofter be talking with a southern lilt. I was exposed to it whike i was a youngish teenager, and there were no white southerners around my neighborhood in ones i passed through.

I didn'tusually speak like that - but when i went to Georgia to visitb a friend in my early 20's my already attuned ear.... I talked like a Southern for almost a whole week when i arrived back home!

haha that's great! my older brother told me that when i was little, about 3 years old, some people from Birmingham (UK) came to stay with us, and i picked up a really strong Brummie accent - they thought it was hilarious apparently but i don't remember anything about it lol

The first thing I tend to notice is his hair. That last photo...

That's just the lighting, right?

I can't remember these converse at all.. And I was pretty into Edge's shoes last tour...
Must have been the shoes he was wearing the first leg of 2009ish?

And that sounds very freaky.

I vaguely do recall him wearing converse instead of the other studded shoes. But I don't remember when/where.
