GUEST,barry Pronunciation of Irish language (117* d) RE: Pronunciation of Irish language 16 Jun 04

If you want to make an attempt to put up the text of the tune title someone might know it.
Otherwise put up the number from O'neill's and I'll look them up at home. I can put up the title in modern irish script and let the native speakers from the regions argue about pronunciation.

I learned "Dublin Irish" and when as a student I went to Ran na Feirste in Donegal I thought I was in a foreign country - couldn't understand a word.

It might be a day or two before I get back to you cos i dont have O'Neills with me at work.
FYI - there are several old gaelic fonts available to download on the net - gailge2, gaelA, gaelB, etc.. Cant remember where I got them but google should find them for anyone interested.
