Dia duit, hello!

Is there anywhere on the Duolingo site that gives lessons on pronunciation? The recorded examples - fast and few that they are - don't give enough help.

Thanks, Paul

Dia is Muire duit! Before someone gives you a better answer, you may want to have a look here: https://www.google.com/search?q=irish+pronunciation+site%3A+duolingo.com

Many of the older threads provide valuable information and useful links.

Le do thoil! I was hoping to find lessons on Duolingo. I'm familiar with Wikipedia Irish Orthography, etc.

No, I'm afraid there aren't any specific lessons. What else have you tried apart from Wikipedia Irish Orthography? Maybe someone will be able to suggest something new? Just to double check, you've seen Karen Reshkin's video, haven't you? If not, it's really worth watching: https://forum.duolingo.com/comment/5176784

I'd also recommend abair.ie, teanglann.ie and focloir.ie, but these have already been mentioned many times in these forums so I suppose you're already aware of them.

That video was EXACTLY what I was looking for - Go raibh maith agat arís.
