We had a great St Patrick's Day party, though it was March 19th. One of the songs we played was 'Eileen Og.' It was quite popular and will be added to the permanent record.

How do you pronounce og? Long or or short? Hard g or not?

I believe it's Irish (could also be Scottish) and means 'young.'

The best guide, despite the spelling difference, is probably the English word rogue - just drop the R!

It's like the O in GLOW but without the W - a uniform O sound without the curving vowels that you always get in English pronunciation.
