As a hiring manager...
I will categorically pass over Irish sounding names just to spare my employees the discomfort of having to deal with someone with such a name. It creates an awkward and tense environment in the workplace. Having to pronounce and spell it, the attitude that comes with that person, it isn’t worth it. I need me people to be a team and not worry about “Seamus” and his clan name.
