: : : "Could?ve bliddy woken"
: : : I would like to know what dialect it is, Irish or else?
: : : Thank you very much

: : It could be Northern Irish but 'bliddy' sounds Scottish to me.

: Given that 'bliddy' is the phonetic spelling of 'bloody' methinks we should search Glasgow for the outspoken individual who made this comment on the 99th no show by 'The Sleeping Beauty' at the annual Arm Wrestling Championship in Duriskininkai

My Collins Dictionary describes 'Biddy' as :
1. C17. Dialect for chicken or hen
2. C18. Pet form of Bridget - a gossipy or interfering old woman
