I’m Irish, of English parents, and was brought up on BBC Radio 4. I have an odd hybrid accent. I’m often asked how long I've been living in Ireland; people don’t believe me when I say I was born here.

I learned Irish and French in school and have, really, forgotten both. I don’t live in a part of Ireland where Irish is commonly spoken.

TRiG.

comment Could “selfue” be a sensible antonym of “selfie”?
You would need 50 points to comment there, but why would you want to comment? You want to answer. It's a protected question, so you need 10 points to answer there, which you can gain quickly by answering other questions.

revised Could “selfue” be a sensible antonym of “selfie”?
Tried to make this an independent question, instead of a poor answer to another question.

I'm far too tired to write an answer. I'll just note a line from cargo to baggage to cultural baggage.

You could delete the word Christian from your first sentence, as this passage is found in all versions of the Bible.
