Hi and welcome!
Some speakers of Irish would pronounce the "r" broad in both those words; some dialects don't distinguish between a broad and a slender r at the beginning of the words - others do.
There would be a slight difference between r
cht and r
cht in many dialects, though. A very small difference but still noticable.
