I recently bought a beautiful gold Muiredach cross, and would like to know the correct pronunciation of Muiredach.

An é sin an litriú ceart? Caol le caol agus mar seo ...
Image Bond. Ionic Bond. Taken, not shared.

Good point. I think Muireadach is the right spelling, according to Google.

no - names don't always conform to caol le caol since that was brought in in fairly recently Muiredach is AFAIK the right way to spell the name.

Aside from that spelling on all the Irish jewelry web sites (from Ireland), it's also the same spelling as on a Co. Louth web site dedicated to the meaning of the Muireadach cross, its origins, and explanations of the figures on the cross. Hopefully, they spelled it correctly!
