Pronunciation tip: Irish counties

It’s St. Patrick’s again, and why would I pass up a chance to do a pronunciation tip on something Irish? This time it’s the counties (and provinces) of Ireland. And although there are 32 of them (and four provinces), it’s a quick one!

  1. This video starts, at least, with how to pronounce “pronunciation.” Maybe it will eventually be about Irish counties, but I don’t know because I gave up. Or maybe it’s the wrong video.

    • How strange! I embedded the right video, and when I double-check, it’s still there. The “how to pronounce ‘pronunciation’” video is an older one; the video this time is . Perhaps there’s some browser caching issue, or perhaps YouTube just did something weird. If anyone else has the same problem, please do let me know!

  2. Duw, duw! Too much of one saint, nowt about others! How about honouring Sts. Andrew, George and David, to restrict yourself to the still-extant UK? I am married to a a Welshwoman and bemoan the lack of attention to Dewi Sant on March 1st. Next year, tell the world how to say, e.g., Caerdydd, Merthyr Tudful, Caernarfon, Porthmadog… And omit the ‘publicity stunt’ embodied by Llanfair p.g., I beg. Diolch yn fawr!

    • You’re right—there is an appalling lack of Welsh content on my blog. This has something to do with my having learned Irish but not Welsh, but I could certainly take steps towards remedying that lack at least a little. If you remember next mid-February, email me a reminder of St. David’s day… of course, I might also get to Welsh a bit sooner if I can!

  3. It’s working now! I don’t know what happened, but now I’ve got the right one up and running. Thanks!
