how will the irish pronounce my last name?

My last name is McGrath and I pronounce it Mc-gRa-tH (capitals for stress)

my dad says that they will most likely call me Mc-Graa

I don't want to be marked absent or appear inattentive

I will be in dublin if that makes any difference.

  • Yeah most people that I know pronounce it Mc-Graa, but I pronounce it Mc-GRATH

    Yip that's how it is pronounced here...but once you know how it will be pronounced you are aware so there should be no problem...
