1."By the grace of God" Trí dheonú Dé (tree YOA-noo JAY)
2."Pride" Bród or mórtas (bro:d – long ‘o’ as in yoa-noo; MORE-tuss) (If it’s a kind of false pride you want, uabhar would be better: OO-uh-vuhr)
3."Kevin McCafferty" Caoimhín Mac Eachmharcaigh (KWEE-veen mahc AHKH-wahr-kee, 'son of the horserider')
4."Mother" máthair (MAW-hir); in direct address ‘a Mháthair’ uh WAW-hir.
5."elevation" In what sense? Airde as an abstract concept or also in the sense of ‘600 feet above sea level’. Ardú for some one physically elevating something. Ardán or cnocán for a rise in the land. (Airde - AHR-djuh; ardú - AHRD-oo; ardán - AHR-dawn.)
6."White Devil" Diabhal bán (DJOWL bawn). But I would recommend 'diabhal buí' yellow devil. (Buí - bwee)

Those are very approximate pronunciations that are quite different from the Munster Irish of the south. If that’s what you want, let us know.
