How Now Brown Cows

'How now brown cow' goes the old saying which is often used in elocution, it's also a phrase often asked of us who come from Northern Ireland.

Most from the other corners of Ireland find how northeners pronounce the 'ow' sound to be funny.

Of course, there are many different Northern Irish accents but this one remains a favourite.

A fine summer scene from Ireland here with three red-brown cows relaxing outside an old friary, seen here through a triple-ogee window of the medieval ruins.

More on the way, keep an eye out here on for more from Ireland.
