The first time Joe Duffy was ever conscious of his Dublin accent, he was speaking at Trinity College when a boy started goading him from the audience. One of only three people at the time to make it from Ballyfermot to its hallowed halls, he lived on the last stop at "the other end of the bus route".

On the second, he was in Doheny & Nesbitt telling friends about his new trainee job in RTE when a man interjected: "Do they know you're from Ballyfermot?"
