For Ulster Irish I’d recommend (though not typical sean-nós) Albert Fry’s singing, which I find very clear (there are a few songs on Youtube, eg. Síos an Sliabh, A Shéamuis Mhic Mhurchaidh, Cumha an Fhile).


He sounds okay, there were a coiuple of dodgy spots but the lyrics may just be different from the subtitles.

For Donegal Irish, I'd recommend Mairéad Ní Mhaonaigh, Máire Ní Bhraonáin (Moya Brennan), Mícheál Ó Domhnaill, Tríona Ní Dhomhnaill and Maighread Ní Dhomhnaill. The last three siblings were in Skara Brae and two of them were in the Bothy Band.

From what I’ve read, although born outside of Gaeltacht (Belfast), he was friends with a Donegal native family and in his youth he’s spent a lot of time in Rann na Feirste in Donegal Gaeltacht. In the 80s he also was a president of the Conradh na Gaeilge.

For Munster (Kerry) Irish, Séamus Ó Beaglaoich (Séamus Begley), Dingle native, has IMO very clear pronunciation, currently there are some of his songs on Youtube: An tSeanbhean Bhocht, Bruach na Carraige Báine (with Mary Black), Ar Éirinn Ní Neosfainn Cé hÍ, An Ciarraíoch Mallaithe, Aililú, na Gamhna (with Louise Morrissey). Spotify also has a few (eg. Amhrán na Leabhar).
