Great thread! I canna add much to this, except to say that you should get a tutorial and get the rudiments of Irish speaking down. Understand that there are several dialects with different pronunciations and phrasings. Ulster is one thing, Munster another. May I suggest that you get two books. One would be "Progress In Irish" and the other would be a good irish/english dictionary. Then go to GAELTACHT MINNESOTA. This should lead you to the Tools section. About halfway down the page are several tutorials on using the books and if you do this, you will have a good basic knowledge of pronounciation. This will help you a great deal in learning to sing in Irish. That, and our wonderful Mudcat crew.

All the best,
