John Merritt's reminder on dialectal difference in pronunciation is to the
point. I have a nephew named Ciaran who must be suffering from a crisis of
identity. His Roscommon father calls him Key'-ra(w)n, his Sth. Kilkenny
mother calls him Key-rawn' ;-)
P.S. I'm surprised that you saw my note, because it was returned to me as
undeliverable - another mystery. Walter.
