Hi Claire,

Yeah I did. I mentioned it about 13 years ago when I joined the band. At that time he'd been doing the phony accent bit for 20 years and he wasn't about to quit. But none of the local native born Irish complain about it, so its just me. So every now and then when he is way over the top we say things like, "How come you don't sound like this on the Phone?" or " Your Mither said what?"
That calms him down awhile.
