You should direct Molly to this.....a Canadian version of the Cork accent laugh (and yes, I do know about the Irish migration to Newfoundland).

The first time I heard a real life Newfie, I actually thought he was from Ireland and had just been living in Canada for a few years laugh

When I was in Ontario, people have mistaken me for British lol. In my little corner of the province, the people originated from Britain, England, Ireland, Scotland, and probably more. In two communities side by side, the dialect could be completely different depending on where the people originally came from. Different parts of Newfoundland has its own unique dialect, slang, its like a bunch of different places crammed onto a island.
