Roddy Doyle uses “admittedly” to un-concede a point

Another entry in our continuing series of posts on conceding a point:

When I was a kid, if you didn’t speak Irish, you really wanted to. And you played Gaelic games and you didn’t pay any attention to what was happening in the outside world, because really, Ireland was the center of the universe. And I don’t think that’s the case anymore. Although, admittedly, it is the center of the universe.
