I listened to the duolingo speaker say "dheartháir" and I checked at abair.ie comparing Gaoth Dobhair, Conamara and Corca Dhuibhne dialects.

Interesting how the differences sound... yair haw-ir versus druh' her

Apparently Munster and Uladh agree but in the west ... Conamara doesn't think that dh = a kind of y sound and then they insert an r where there isn't an r

okayyyyyyyy then :-) whew ... wow

Connacht seems to move the "r" forward in the word many times

"dátheangach" - is that an exception from the Caol le caol, leathan le leathan-rule? And why?
