Good day!

Was wondering if I could get some help on the pronunciation of “coinnigh do mhisneach”?? My Irish language knowledge is zero so by reading I want to say it maybe sounds like coinnigh(coin-eee) do(do) mhisneach(mu-his-neesh) but I really don’t know.

Hopefully someone can help me out!

Thanks,

Brendan

Not quite. If you'd like to hear each of the words separately, click each one below to hear it pronounced. Be aware, though, that the m sound at the start of misneach is actually going to sound like a v in this sentence.

Coinnigh do mhisneach


To give you an idea of it phonetically see below. The ch at the end is pronounced like the one at the end of the word, loch. Also, the letters in all caps are the stressed syllables, so give them a bit more emphasis when pronouncing the sentence:

KUN-ey duh VISH-noch

In Ulster it sounds like "KONN-yee duh VISH-nyah".

This is how I would pronounce it.
