Irish Pronunciation

I am very passionate about learning Irish, but I'm lacking a certain skill I need in order gain fluency. This skill is the pronunciation. I ordered a grammar book and I use it often, but it doesn't have anything about pronunciation. Can anyone give me some tips that I can use?

Here is a good video you can use. It's not a complete overview and it's no replacement for actually finding a talking circle, but it's still a very valuable resource.

I am not that passionate, but I quite often wondered about the pronunciation as well. What I found was the page http://www.abair.tcd.ie/?lang=eng

I not sure which language region it uses, but at least it can output any word or sentence I tried so far, which helps a lot. Maybe even something the contributors should consider if they can get an official permission to use it..

If you can read International Phonetic Alphabet transcriptions, you can refer to the Wikipedia article on Irish orthography.
