    Enjoyed the podcast, though “Konka Var” made my ears bleed 🙂 It’s definitely Kruh Hoor as others pointed out on Twitter. Daire is Darr-Ah, Dubhthach is Doo-Vuck, Feidhlimidh is Fail-Ah-Me. But, like every language, Irish spelling and pronunciation has evolved in the past thousand years, so most Irish speakers will make their best guess at a name that hasn’t been common for a few hundred years. Check out the album by the Horslips if you can.

      Yeah…I’ve gotten a lot of help for the next episode, so hopefully most if not all those problems will be solved. I stuck very close to a couple pronunciation guides I had and researched each name as far as I could, but I’m surprised how wildly off I was.

      I appreciate the help on those names. I’ve already recorded next week’s episode, but I’ll give you a shoutout, too, for your help.

      Also, I’m listening to the album now as I write, and I love it. Thanks!

    Hi. I love the podcast. I’m Irish and just wanted to tell you that Medb is pronounced as Mave (rhymes with rave) incase she appears in future episodes.

      She appears quite a bit, so thanks for letting me know. I thanked you on the podcast episode next week 🙂
