In Hibernian English, there's no th or dh sounds. These are replaced
with a dental t and dental d - both of which sound like "d" to the
unpracriced ear.
On my first tour of Dublin the guid pointed out Trintiy College Librart
and anoundce that when the library was founded they had only thirty
book". To my unprcticed ear I Heard that the libtray started with only
"dirty books" (ie porn)! EOF-LOL
