Michael Loved For His Irish Root

Michael talked about his connection to Ireland and how his way of speaking or his accent changed. 

He was born in Dublin but moved to England when he was young. 

In England, he started speaking more like the English people around him. However, when he returned to visit his parents in Camden Town, his Irish accent would return. 

He felt a solid connection to his  Irish roots, and he always considered himself Irish in his heart.

He even makes a funny demonstration of how he spoke differently depending on where he was living. 

So, his accent was influenced by where he was at the time, whether it was Ireland or England.
