I love it how Colbert thinks that the name Suarez is a Mexican name. You uneducated hypocritical swine.

There are 32 counties in Ireland ,each with its own accent. within those counties are many other regional accents . The accent Saoirse speaks with would be a Dublin south side inner city accent, not posh but also nothing like an inner city Dublin accent. There are Posh Dublin south side accent , and the same goes for North county Dublin.

Why do people feel it is acceptable to laugh at an Irish accent or spelling when nobody would dare to laugh or mock a Tanzanian or a Zambian accent or spelling for fear of being accused of racism?

Why do the Irish put “v” where there is no v. Why not just utilize the alphabet as it was meant to be.

I grew up in a working class Irish neighborhood in NYC. For a long time I was the only part Asian in that neighborhood up until the late 90s. One of my childhood friends was named Siobhan but uncultured me always pronounced it as "Syo-ban". We ended up nicknaming her Cindy and it's been that way for 22 years until back in 2016 when her aunt finally taught me how to pronounce her name.

How funny (ironic). There is no one Irish accent. There are dozens of them, depending on which part of the country one comes from. An informed ear will quickly discern from which part of Ireland the speaker originated e.g. Saoirse is attempting to teach Stephen an urban Dublin accent (I won't complicate matters by saying which part of Dublin or socioeconomic stratum). That's the problem with supersimplification. It'll always get you into trouble.

I wonder why the Irish even bother to use the Latin script. They should adapt the old Ogham alphabet for modern use. Of course, who wants to learn a whole new alphabet.

What I'd like to know is: Are there actual pronunciation rules concerning these names? Or do you just have to learn that kind of stuff one by one?

Irish didn’t have the same alphabet as the English, so we made letter sounds like V from combining letter like mh and bh.

“And I’ve got the skin tone to go with it” she says... She’ll be pretty surprise when she find out there are tons of blond, white skin, blue/green eye Mexicans.

that's why it so easy with Cyrillic languages like Russian because they are phonetic, it's pronounced like it's written

There is no an Irish accent, there is an Irish language though, actually a few of them. Irish in general are obnoxious, intolerant, mouthy, farty, dirty, lazy alcoholics. Extremely judgmental. Girls have no class. On st pats, all girls in Dublin behave like sluts. Irish as Celts are not even native to Ireland but invaders, who came all the way from their home land through Europe, what is now Anatolia Turkey. And brought with them the middle eastern love for sheep and donkeys. They are the red heads, because they are a mix race, it is a first sign.
