Very good, Guest. I might add just a couple of other tips. for the "T" in tusa, place your toungue on the roof of your mouth behind your front teeth and make gentle th sound. Recall the way Irish people say think, thought, these, those(I don't mean to offend anyone. It's the best example I can come up with to illustrate this). There is a slight trill on the "R" in rún and ghrá. Just a light "R" sound. As for mo ghrá gheal, try "muh ghraw-gyull".(let a llittle air come out with that "g" inghrá. The difference in the "G" sounds in ghrá and geal has to do with broad and slender consanants and would consitute another volume of material.

Go n-éirí an t-adh leat(Good luck)!

Brían.
