I have moved this to a new thread as it could get lost where it was.


I am from Germany and I am writting a report about Dublin, and I need the correct pronunciation of "Baile Atha Cliath" and "Dun Laoghaire". Can someone help me, please? Thank you very much!!! (I need it for today or tomorrow)

Baile = Bal-yeh
Atha= Awe-hah
Cliath= Clee-ah

For Dun Laoghaire there are 2 very different pronciations- the irish one and the day to day words by the people who live there. I will use the 'Irish version...

Dún = Doon

Laoghaire= lair-eh

these are simple phonetic 'quicky' sounds.
