How do I prounounce "Là Fhèill Brighde"?

Halò a charaidean!

With Là Fhèill Brighde coming up this Friday night/Saturday morning, I'd love to be able to say the name of this holy day with confidence, and I can guess and piece it together but if a native Gaelic speaker could shed some light I'd greatly appreciate it!

Mòran taing agus tìoraidh!

It's similar to

Lah eil breach-uh

That's what I was assuming but I wanted to confirm whether the "lah" and "eil" get sort of blended together, as in the Irish here (https://forvo.com/word/l%C3%A1_fh%C3%A9ile_br%C3%ADde/#ga) or if it gets a glottal stop between the Là and Fhèill
