'gh' of 'ghearr' & 'dh' of 'dheartháir' both mispronounced.

Oh, God. That last one was absolutely awful.

The words of the late great Vincent Price in 'House of Usher' come to mind: "every word is exquisite agony to me" :)

Thanks for clearing that up. I still don't have a good grasp of how things should be pronounced, and I couldn't figure out how that /dh/ could ever come out as a /g/.

Where can we find them pronounced properly? The site www.teanglann.ie has pronunciations but not when the word is modified.
