You know you're from Munster when...

There are some things you just can’t hide. Being from Munster is one of them.

THERE ARE SOME things that are just Munster all over.

The red jerseys, the M8, the inimitable accents… But it’s not always so obvious.

There are some things that only a fellow Munster person will understand.

1. You say “I will yeah”

And no one but your fellow Munster folk know you actually mean “No”.

2. You’ve got Russell Crowe on your side

And he’s quite a fierce man altogether. You definitely want him with you rather than against you. You’ve seen Gladiator, right? Imagine that on the rugby pitch.

3. You answer the phone with “Well!”

And litter your conversations with slang that your jackeen mates up in Dublin find nigh-on incomprehensible.

4. You know your home province boasts the best of Irish scenery

There’s no doubt that Munster is breathtaking. From the stunning vistas of the Ring of Kerry:

To the imposing Rock of Cashel in Tipp:

Right back to the expanse of the beautiful, unique Burren:

And of course, Dunmore East in Waterford, home to many happy family holidays:

5. And the best chipper too

Shout out to KC’s. Or, to give them their proper title, KC & Son & Sons. Unbeatable stuff from Cork city.

6. You’re incredibly proud of anyone successful from Munster

And that extends beyond your county’s sports stars. You’re talking Cillian Murphy, Edna O’Brien, the Rubberbandits, Una Healy…

7. Tanora is heaven-sent

And you can’t believe no one in Connaught, Ulster or Leinster agrees. Philistines.
