I'll be reading the following blessing at an upcoming wedding. Below is an approximation of the way I'm currently pronouncing it. I'd very much appreciate any feedback on what I might be mispronouncing.
Go raibh sibh daibhir i mí-áidh
Agus saibhir i mbeannachtaí
Go mall ag déanamh namhaid, go luath a déanamh carad,
Ach saibhir nó daibhir, go mall nó go luath,
Nach raibh ach áthas agaibh
Ón lá seo amach.
guh ruh shiv DAV-ur i MEE-aw
AH-gus SAV-ur i MAN-ukh-tee
guh mahl uh JAY-now NOW-uj, guh LU-uh uh JAY-now KAH-rud
AHKH SAV-ur no DAV-ur, guh mahl no guh LU-uh
nahkh ruh ahkh AW-hus uh-GIV
own law shuh uh-MAHKH
In case it's not clear, I'm using "kh" to represent the velar fricative, as seems to be standard.

Well done on the pronunciation, maybe a few things, but it might depend on regional variation
guh rev shiv dhowe-ear ih mee-aw
auhgus sou-ear i man-ock-tee
guh moll egg jay-niv nouh-vid, guh lu-ah a jay-niv car-id
ock sou-ear no dhowe-ear, guh moll no guh lu-ah
knock rev shuh amock
