I think you've misread me, Mogli. I said a Castlebar person would never pronounce the word "smile" as "shmile". Neither would he, for example, pronounce "sport" as "shport". But he would pronounce "stick" as "shtick", "stand" as "shtand" and, to use your example "castle" as "cashel".It takes a local, I suppose, to know how - and I dont intend this in any elitist way! And finally, Mogli, I really am from Castlebar and very proud too of my accent and mode of pronunciation even if its not the same as AA Roadwatch, Joe Duffy or An Taoiseach.
