I am having the worst time trying to find a pronunciation for this name. Is it possible that it might be pronounced differently in various regions of Ireland? Will someone please help?

Fardoragh

Thank you. :D

Nuair a shuíonn an coileach péacoige ar a thóin, níl ann ach turcach

yes, Fear dorcha. Dark Man Could also mean dark haired man
you familiar with the girls name Sorcha, substitute the S with a D and you have the pronounciation of Dorcha. Also I'd prounounce it as if there were an "a" like dor a cha- if you see what I mean

It appears to be 'Feardorcha' fear agus dorcha (doracha) = Frederick
