If Saoirse Ronan's rise to Hollywood superstardom is to continue at its current meteoric pace then it's about time people started getting her name right. 

Take Dennis Quaid for example. The movie legend made an absolute hames of pronouncing the Irish star's name when he announced in 2015 that she had been nominated for a Golden Globe in recognition of her star turn in Brooklyn

If you've forgotten about the faux-pas, watch below:

Sheesha bloody Ronan.

The star of The Day After Tomorrow held out an olive branch on the Ian Dempsey Breakfast Show on Today FM this morning when he admitted he still gets grief from his Irish pals for the error. 

On air to promote his upcoming movie A Dog's Purpose, Quaid finished the interview with an apology to Ronan and the Irish public in general.

All is forgiven, Dennis. Just don't let it happen again.
