I was wondering if someone could help me.

Cuisle mo chroí

mo chroí sounds like muh kree i think

How would one pronounce Cuisle?

Alright, thanks!

I should have known that. Because i've used cushla machree.

Can it be written as Macushla, or is it better to use Mo cuisle?

I myself pronounce it as:

cwishla muh cree

which when written grammatically correct is:

Cuisle mo chroí

The 'h' is "mandatory".

The vocative case of it (ie. addressing some-one as "Cuisle mo chroí") is:

A Chuisle mo chroí
