The pronunciation is a characteristic of the Irish language. Gorm (blue) is pronounced gorum; ainm (name) is anum; lorg (search) is lorig. But it's not quite that simple in this case. Colm might be the preferred Irish spelling but it is also spelled Colum, possibly because its most famous namesake is St. Columcille (in Irish) or St. Columba (in English), the sixth century Christian missionary who started his work in Donegal and then continued in Scotland (and the story of that transition is something else!). I don't know how Mr. Sands prefers to spell his name. It means "dove" in any case.

I guess I haven't been here in so long I've lost my cookie.
