    Two countries separated by a common language

    During our upcoming vacation in the British Isles, one of the towns we'll be staying in is Portlaoise, Ireland. I've been pronouncing it like, "PORT-la-WEEZ". But, as it turns out....somehow or other it's actually "port-LEASH". WTH?

    Pfffffffft. Irish.
