Okay folks, this is NOT a word! It is formed by two legitimate words:
Irrespective - Without regard to something else, esp. something specified; ignoring or discounting, showing disregard for persons or consequences, without considering
Regardless- Despite; not being affected by something. Actioned in a way which shows no consideration for a subject or the status of a situation.
Whenever I hear someone say this word I almost immediately stop listening because the education level of the conversation just went down to that of a 1 year old. If you are one of the fools who thinks this is a word, please remove it from your vocabulary immediately and save yourself some embarrassment.
