It was not that long ago that a well-known writer on linguistic topics was able to state that

by the little Englanders we are told that the Irish speak, not English
but Anglo-English; yet many educated and cultural Irishmen speak
and write the most admirable, if slightly old-fashioned, English.
(Partridge 1951:65)
