Brogue an mBó

Anthropomorphism gone crazy in the UK with the revelation that cows speak in regional accents; no doubt in the Home Counties they will moo with a cut-glass bovine equivalent of Received Pronunciation. This former vegetarian will however not have any qualms about eating beef from a cow that may once have had a charming Meath accent, though given the frequency with which livestock is carted about these days, I would say that most strains would be a bit all over the place.
