Just Ask a Local

A couple from Texas were on a driving tour across Ireland, taking in sights they couldn't get back home.  While driving through Connemara, they were often boggled by the place names, which peaked as they were approaching Banraghbaun.

The couple started arguing about the pronunciation of the town's name.  They argued back and forth until they stopped for lunch at a pub, where they knew they could settle their bet as to how it was pronounced by asking a local.

Settling in at the bar, the man asked the young lass behind the counter,  "Before we order, could you please settle an argument for us?  Would you please pronounce where we are – very slowly?"

"Sure," said the girl.

She leaned over the counter and said,  "Ooooooh'Connnnorrrrr's Puuubbb."
