    Re: word pronunciation

    It's not a word in the sense that you could find it in a dictionary; it's a proper noun (that is, a name).

    It might be:

    a family name (from Ireland, apparently), or

    a village in England.

    I haven't been able to find the pronunciation. If it's the family name, then the correct pronunciation is whatever the family members say is the correct pronunciation; and if it's the village, the correct pronunciation is whatever the inhabitants say is the correct pronunciation.

    Sorry I can't help you more than that.
