Donal Vaughan - pronounced Donal Vauckin

Bonar or Anthony Maher - pronounced Bonar (Anthony) Marr

Benny Coulter - pronounced Benny Cooolter

Anthony Thompson -  the "Th" at the start of the surname is pronounced. Why is the H pronounced here and not in the word 'three' for example. If he scored 0-3 in a game the commentator would probably say "Thhhompson has now scored tree"

Walter Walsh - pronounced Walter Welsh Confused probably the strangest of the lot that one

Any others? Im sure there are more im forgetting

They can't seem to tell the difference between Walsh and Welch.

Welsh is how they say Walsh down around KK for some bizarre reason
Eamonn Dunphy:"I'll tell you who wrote it, Rod Liddle, he's the guy who ran away and left his wife for a young one".

Walsh is pronounced Welsh in a load of places in Ireland. Strange one alright, very confusing

Also, Keane being pronounced "Kane".

That would be Brick Welsh, who plays home hurling games in Welsh Park. Referred to as nothing else around here, anyone with that surname pronouncing it as 'Walsh' would be seen as someone with notions about thereselves LOL

Just listen to David Brady or James Nallen speak and how they pronounce names in that ultra bog man accent

Any chance you could characterise what constitutes a bog man accent? By virtue of it coming from the west perhaps? You are fully entitled to your little smiley face, you clearly dont like the west of Ireland accent and that is purely a subjective opinion that you are more than entitled to. However, I would like to know what makes a lad from from Carlow/Laois/Tipperary think it is acceptable to throw stones inside the old glass house as regards the whole "bog man" thing. Aren't the best bogs from that part of the country?

Hark at the urban sophisticate Walls LOL. Fcuk whatever accent ya have, the starting point is knowing what county yer from Wink...........

Those Tipp bogs ?? Aye, they still kind of exist, but co-exist with eco-warrior windmills, all 758 of them dotted around the flatlands outside Thurles after a full year's spinning would just about be enough to power the main beam on yer rothar for about 20 minutes, that is, if you had a rothar in the first place.

Whelan pronounced weelan in most places is pronounced waylan in the South East. Something similar happens with Phelan. Pronounced faylan in the SE.

A strange one that i never understood.
