Suarez, dumbfuck, is an Spanish (from Spain) last name. So, your "señorita Suares, because you have a thick, mexican accent," is not only quite ignorant, but downright profiling!

Just to be clear that's a Dublin accent. In Galway, "Saoirse" is pronounced seer-sha as in "this tastes queer-sha!"
She is faking her accent, she's from my town in southern Ireland, I have a strong southern Irish accent, she has a Dublin accent, so how is that possible??? Dublin is 70km away from my area, TRUST ME PEEPS SHES PUTTING THAT ACCENT ON

The high bubbly sing songy Irish accent is a stereotype you find in Hollywood though it’s not completely far off from certain areas in Ireland, and the accent changes every where you go.

As I will find myself strolling of this mortal coil one day it this accent speaking reassurances to me that it is all going to be alright, I would be satisfied I had done me best and not hurt anyone as I passed along life's many paths, but this accent gives me goosebumps, I hope the day is far off but I look forward to it none the less.

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.

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