Phonetic mapping in Irish

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.
