While the specific phrase "flannel mouth" isn't covered in the following

some expressions of note. It is principally for that adjacent isle, but
there may have been some cross-pollination.

this in a conversation yesterday when describing an Irish in-law the family
was not fond of. This in-law passed away in the 1930's.
