I heard that EE-mur wasn't the correct pronunciation of Eimear even though everybody here (in Ireland) pronounces it that way. My cousin is called Eimear and we pronounce it EE-mur but my granny, who speaks Donegal Irish, pronounces it AY-mer. She also pronounces Siobhan
SHOO-in. Do you know if this is an old/Donegal way of pronouncing Siobhan or maybe just her own way?!
