Oops! Something went badly wrong there!:

To some extent it depends, these days, on where you learned your Irish! As a rough phonetic guide, just run together:
vie    (as in seek someone's attention)
ing    (as in willing)
shuh    (as at the front end of "shovel"!)

As to why.... see Felipa's comments earlier in the thread.
