Mairead Ronan's right to have last word on her last name
Fair play to Today FM's Mairead Farrell - as she was formerly known.
She recently married and after the ceremony took her husband Louis's name, calling herself Mairead Ronan.
Mairead (above) has attracted the ire of some people because of this - but I think she is quite right.
In fact, I think she should be complimented for standing up to the keyboard-warrior busy bodies - how many of them are married themselves?
Mairead is still a blushing bride, clearly in love, and is happy and proud to call herself Mrs Ronan.
She needn't worry that her name change may have an effect on her career, as some have suggested - after all she has recently filmed a new series of Ireland's Fittest Families.
Freedom is all about choice Mairead, well done for defending your right to change your name.
