    Language - or more to the point Derry lingo can be a bit of a communication barrier sometimes. Derry people do not speak normal English!! And they talk fast which really doesn't help matters. I was fluent in English when I moved here in '96, now I'm fluent in Derry lingo as well :o) I'd recommend an excellent (and very funny) book written by Seamus McConnell: 'The Ultimate Wile Big Derry Phrasebook' (available in most book shops), or as a quick reference guide get yourself a Derry Lingo t-shirt at one of the market stalls outside the Tower museum.
