Pronunciation

Jump to last reply

Wow, two month from yesterday and we will be in Ireland. I am so ready.

On of the things I would appreciate knowing is how to pronounce some of the place names, so if you could help me with the following, I would be appreciative (my thoughts are in parenthesis):

Sligo (Slee-go)
Oughterard (Oo-ter-ard)
Mweelrea (Mm-well-ree-ah)
Croagh (Cro-ah)
Illaunonearaun (Ill-ow-non-eer-an)
Looscaunagh (Loos-can-aw)
Cashel (is it cash-el or ca-shel)

Thanks!
