I was wondering why thier is more than one way of saying How are you? There is three ways and at the end each one says a different thing like (Connemara) another (Ulster) and last (Munster) does anyone know what they mean?

How are you?
How do you do?
What's the story/craic/buzz?
How's she cutting?
That's why there's more than one way.
Conas atá tú? = How are you?
Cén chaoi ina bhfuil tú? = What way are you?
There all just variations on "Hello".

Connemara is the west of Ireland;
Ulster is the north;
Munster is the south.
Each area has their own preferred way to ask "How are you?".
