"Pronunciation"[edit]

If we're going to include this, it needs a cite at minimum to a video of the man himself pronouncing his own name. The people introducing him invariably make it rhyme with "fork" (/...ɔ(ː)ɹk/); utterly none make it rhyme with "lurk" or use the vowel of "pure", which is what the IPA /oʊˈrʊərk/ claims is going on. There might be some Irish who pronounce the name this way, but I very much doubt this Mr O'Rourke does. — LlywelynII 01:21, 20 October 2018 (UTC)
