January Snippet 'Emigrant ancestors who returned to Ireland' - Response Three

John Donahue's story
 

Two of my friends, born in Ireland, returned there for good and died there.  I was told my grandfather may have returned for a brief visit but can't prove that.  Other friends born there have visited and come back to America.  One told me that those people talk funny.  I said "they talk like you Pat".  He answered "I always thought I talked like you fellows"." One friend born in America but raised in Ireland had a thick Irish accent.  His younger brother born in Ireland but raised in America had no accent at all.
