I get this wrong every time. I can't hear anything other than Mhathair.

I agree with TamaraMoff4 - female voice is saying Mhathair surely

Definitely saying mhathair

I agree with the others -- the voice is saying mhathair not bhrathair

I agree with the other learners. The speaker isn't pronouncing the "r" in "bhràthair"

I get this wrong most of the time as the Mhathair and bhrathair sound so similar.

I agree. I listened to it a dozen times over and I can NOT hear That first 'r' in bhrathair.

If there is a pronunciation difference between "mha" and "bhra" then this speaker's dialect doesn't seem to distinguish it.

I protest! One cannot hear the "R" at the beginning of "bhrathair" so it sounds like mhathair.
