Did anyone else notice how they spelled Mairéad's name in the album sizzle reel?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vbUPbYYofjU

Máiread (with the accent on the first a instead of the e). They spelled it that way multiple times during the video.

Her Twitter and Facebook accounts spell it Mairéad, which I have to imagine is the correct way to spell it.

Máiréad Nesbitt has the á in it, but I don't think Mairéad Carlin (Scolard) is supposed to have the á.

I'm definitely not going to raise it with them. Mairéad would probably just shrug or laugh it off anyways. It probably happens all the time and I'm sure she's seen worse.

I wonder if maybe Máiread is a common Irish name too. If so, it would be pretty easy to mix up Máiread and Mairéad.

Maybe the name is spelled differently by region too.

Anyways, I suppose it's an easy mistake to make and a forgivable one. Did anyone else catch what they did to Tara's name though in the Photoshoot video?

   My   special  "Belle  from  Belfast"  Mairead Healy  most  certainly  pronounces her name  with  the  2nd   syllabel  being  emphacized. ( and she is  from  N  Ireland  like  MC   Cool

Cool!

BTW, in the Voices of Angels CD insert booklet, it's spelled Mairéad. I'm pretty sure that's the right way and folks who did the video just got a bit confused. Lol.

In case anyone is wondering, she's still using the last name Carlin (at the very least as a stage name).

That's the way she's been getting announced in the Voices of Angels tour at the end of the show.

Good  to  know  Tom.  It  seems  that  many  of  the  married  CW s  -past  or  present-  have  followed  that  formula.   Cool
