Saddened by this.

Was only talking to a lad in work during the week about the Irish that were successful in broadcasting in the UK. The theory goes that because their accents were neutral that the general public couldn't place them and because of that the BBC couldn't be accused of regional bias.

Here's a question...
Can you tell someone from Cork, or Galway, or Dublin apart?

I've asked this question of Australians....can you tell when someone is from Western Australia or Queensland?
The answer I got was accents are different between those who live in the city as against the country (outback), rather than states.

To my ear they're very different CITK. Dublin accent is distinctive in that it's very gutteral, the Cork accent is more lyrical ( akin to Welsh I'd say ) whereas the Galway accent is more consistent with the rest of the country. The further north you go the more you can hear the Scottish influence in the accent.

'The further north you go...'

The Americans always refer to the 'Scotch-Irish' in that respect, don't they?

Yeah, there was always a distinction made between the Scotch-Irish and the regular Irish in the U.S., mainly because th former didn't want to be associated with the latter.

The Scotch-Irish would've been your planters, lords, earls and what not whereas the Irish were good for nothing drunks and wife-beaters.

Thankfully that attitude doesn't really exist anymore.
