Subject: Sinne Fianna Fail - English phonetic pronunciation
Date: Thu, 13 Mar 2003 23:26:09 GMT


Anyone here fluent in Irish ?

If so, please give me some feedback on my English phonetic pronunciation
below for the national anthem, as I want to be able to be perfect with
it for this weekend.

Also, if anybody has an MP3 of the singing of this beautiful anthem ,
please pass it to me. I have the instrumental midi, but I would like to
hear it being clearly sung.

TIA ...

she-na fee-na fall a-thaw fay yeol egg erin
Sinnne Fianna Fáil atá fé gheall ag Éirinn,

veen dar slew are thin the raw negooing
Buion dár slua thar toinn do ráinig chugainn

vayd voig vesair shantir our shinshir fasta
Fémhóid bheith saor. Seantír ár sinsir feasta

nee-og fur fay cheer-on naw fay troil
Ní fhagfar fé'n tiorán ná fé'n tráil.

an nocht a hane saa var na vail
Anocht a théam sa bhearna bhaoil,

nay gown our gale come bausch no sale
Le gean ar Ghaeil chun báis nó saoil

la grawn ish grayick fay naw buck naw bell air
Le guna screach fé lámhach na bpiléar,

shall liv hon ick arawn naveen
Seo libh, canaídh Amhrán na bhFiann.


...by the way, I have difficulty with the rhythm of the 2nd last line
...

Thanx
