Rupert, Irish people, among others, tend to use "bring" in many instances where grammarians tell is we should use "take". I think "bring" tends to indicate the user feels a closeness to the person/thing being brought/taken, or to the destination. An example from the popular song My Lovely Horse:"I want to shower you with sugar lumps and ride you over fences, polish your hooves every single day and bring you to the horse dentist." Here, the singer feels a closeness to the horse.
