I'm having some trouble mapping letters to sounds in Irish. Does anybody have any suggestions? I've looked at the sites suggested on the Irish portal, but I'm still struggling.

Here's a thorough YouTube tutorial which includes IPA: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oIokUII7LX0&feature=share

Also, just noticed the guy who does the video game playthroughs in Irish is doing a series going through Duolingo! Good for getting some genuine pronunciation: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MvxBvWvvTjs

Do you know the IPA? If so, the Irish Orthography Wikipedia page is a good place to start.
