    What is ridiculous is for an English speaking person say anything about other languages writing and pronunciation. Irish is much more consistent than English when it comes to pronunciation rules.

    I wonder if people have trouble with my name...There's a silent 'g' . My last name is just silly : Stiubhart (with an accent on the U no less) There are only 19 people in Fife (Scotland) who can pronounce it. I guess it's a Clan affectation. Stiubhart is Gaelic for Stewart - pronounceable by everyone. All of my Scots relatives speak Gaelic. I spent years trying to learn it. I'm not sure it's a genuine language, I think it's just an ancient maxillofacial exercise to increase saliva production :-)

      @Lixna Really Sorry ! But this my opinion. Irish accent its really difficult.

    • Lixna
      Lixna 27 days ago

      Really? Tens of thousands of Spanish, French and Italian schoolchildren for example, come to stay in Ireland every year and have done so for decades because they and their parents know it's a good place to learn English. But you, some random dipshit on USclip , says otherwise. All you've actually done is show to the world that you are ignorant, careless and someone whose word cannot be trusted. Well done.

      I'm Irish and there's a Canadian in my school. Now I dunno if the Canadian accent varies depending on the part of Canada you're from, but its seems to be a great accent if you're being a smart arse.

    I am french and I used to work as an aid for deaf children in school. I had one deaf girl in kindergarden, we used sign language and also an alphabet where I could explain to her how a word was pronounced. Anyhow, one day there was a new kid, from Ireland. His name was Eimhin. So I spell out the name with all the letters and then I explain to her how it is pronounced (something like "Ayven"). She looked so confused. Where was that V sound coming from? XD

    I just picked up a bargain brand new 2013 DVD starring Ronan called Violet and Daisy and she is absolutely in my mind back then one of the most beautiful teenage girls I've ever seen. She and Alexis Bledel (was in Sin City) play teen hired assasins, so it's violent but actually very funny, and Ronan looks amazing in long reddish-blonde hair in this film. I highly recommend this movie if you like this girl.
