We had no idea. It really irks us Irish when English commentators mispronounce our footballers' names. 'Doc-erty' instead of Doherty, 'More-an' for Moran. There's nothing worse.
Well, it turns out a lot of us are no better. Aston Villa midfielder Conor Hourihane has explained how to actually pronounce his surname, and we have been doing it wrong for years.
Now, we know that Cork people are going to come on here and call us a bunch of fools (and they're probably right), but the consensus in the Balls office was that it was pronounced 'Ho-rihane'. We were wrong.
In a video with BBC Sport, Hourihane was asked how to correctly pronounce his name when the startling revelation came to light.
'People have been getting it wrong for 10 years!'@ConorHourihane has set a challenge to commentators this season.

'HOW-rihane'! George Hamilton has actually been pronouncing it this way on RTÉ, so we really should have known better.
We will correct our mistake in the future, but we doubt British commentators will do the same.
Hourihane will make his Premier League bow this season, and we are excited to see how he fares in the English top flight. He has been very impressive in Ireland's Euro 2020 qualifiers to date, and coming up against top level opposition on a regular basis should improve his international performance.
