It varies, actually. My mother (also from Ireland, but living in US since late 1950's) says, "ee-DEL." Other family members (in Ireland) say it either the same way as my mother or "eh-DEL." It's a puzzle, really.

I should say that my family are from the South, Counties Cork and Tipperary. Other parts of Ireland may have different ways to say the same name.
