Author's Pronunciation Guide: Sevenwaters Trilogy
The reader may appreciate some assistance with the Irish names used in the Sevenwaters books. Please note there can be several versions of the spelling and pronunciation of a name, all perfectly valid. For instance, if you ask someone in Dublin to pronounce the name Sorcha you'll get one answer, but a person from County Kerry will give you a different version.
Padriac: Pad-ric (more commonly spelt Padraic)
Sorcha: Sor-ca or Sur-ha
Uí Néill: Ee Nay-ill
