Irish-English, also known as Hiberno-English was brought to Ireland after the Norman invasion in 1169. At this time Ireland had one king ruling over many clans and was an entirely Gaelic speaking kingdom.
Following the invasion and subsequent occupation, English became prevalent, especially in the Dublin region known as The Pale which continued to speak English thereafter.

More info about the Irish accent
The Southern Irish and Dublin accent is often described as ‘musical’. This is in part due to the diphthongized pronunciation of most vowels.
Diphthongized – what!?
Ok, for example, words like “right” sound like “roit”; “alarm” sounds like “alaarm” (with a flattened “a” sound); and words like “caught” and “cot” are pronounced the same. This is also the same way singers extend words to match music. Northern Ireland and Belfast accents are also similar but share traits of the Scottish accent with a stronger emphasis on R and O sounds. You can hear this in our Irish Voice Actors.
Irish is sexy
The Irish way with words is frequently described as one of the sexiest accents in the world.
Southern Irish is thought of as charming, jolly and engaging by other native English speakers. Northern Irish sounds more subdued to the same ears.
Michael McIntyre’s hilarious sketch on accents describes the difference perfectly. Sound good? Voquent is here as an Irish voice-over agency to provide for all your Irish needs, be it voice over or even transcription for those tricky words.
