You're welcome.

Well, it's something like:

Ah Heerna, jane TROKE-rah.

No bother,
I'm not that great at describing pronunciations but I don't think you''d be too far off with the one above.

Good man - I placed a bet with myself that you'd chime in with that.
I didn't win much though - the odds were quite short! :twisted:

i was listening to RnaG y'day and they pronounce "a dhéanamh" as

// ah yane-iv \\

whereas i'm used to

// ah yan-oo \\


(I still like my version better :wink: )

But Conor, you speak of "RNG" as if it is some station that excludes Ulster Irish - which is far from the case. 8O
