The British are at it again! Ireland is enraged after the Republic was lumped into the same polling group as the United Kingdom.

An online poll has sparked Irish rage, with some claiming that the Republic’s various accents have been “clumped together” and labeled as “British.”

A 2014 YouGov poll, which was re-shared this week on the company’s social media, looked into which accents people in the UK liked and disliked the most, and Twitter users were more interested in the fact that Ireland was lumped together as “Southern Irish” than in the poll’s actual results.

“Where to begin with this tweet?” Jack Lahart wondered.

“‘British accents’ for a map that includes the Republic? ‘Southern Irish’ – not a thing,” he said.

“Have you ever heard a Donegal or Cork person speak?”

“In summary, the Brits are at it again,” he said.

“‘British accents’… ‘Southern Irish’? Feels like pretty big news I must have missed somehow,” ‘@nscrut_’ joked.

“‘Southern Irish’ is cringe, yes, but being included in ‘British isles’ – a fate worse than death,” ‘(dollar)1000 crab’ added.

The term “British Isles” is not officially recognized by the Irish government.

Despite this, some have suggested that the row – which resulted in the term ‘Southern Irish’ ‘trending’ on Twitter – was exaggerated, and that Ireland had actually received a compliment.

Expert advises that “Brexit is a factor” and that “now is the best time to book your vacation.”

The poll revealed that Britons prefer the ‘Southern Irish’ accent, according to author Ben Cobley.

‘Southern Irish’ was found to be the most attractive agent, with a net 42, 11 points ahead of ‘Received Pronunciation.’

“As far as offence-taking goes, I thought this was pretty good,” Mr Cobley said on Twitter.

“According to a poll, the ‘Southern Irish’ accent is popular among British people.’

“You retaliate by slamming the English for being so damned unfriendly…”

Others, however, criticized the row for not going far enough, as is typical of Twitter.

Some cried out, “What about the various Welsh and Northern Irish accepts that have been lumped together?”

“In South Wales, every town has a different accent; how can you say ‘Welsh’?” wrote ‘SG’, for example.

“And don’t even get me started on the phony North-West accent!”

“If you think people in Essex and Oxford have the same accent, you’re having a laugh,” Liam continued.

While the Irish may be dissatisfied with their country’s reintroduction,
