Thanks so much for the feedback. It is very helpful. Here is the  main rule
taught in Irish language classes in Ireland and USA on the  slender T.   The
rule of Tir.

The Irish pronunciation rule of the slender T
Or the rule of Tir.

Tir, land country can be pronounced correctly


Every native speaker would understand no matter which I said.    Posted by
Padraig - a native speaker -- on Daltai Irish language discussion  group Jan 28,

I am not a native speaker. Though my grandparents were native speakers of
Donegal dialect who emigrated to Greenpoint, Brooklyn.. They pronounced Tir
Jeer. And Teas Jass.

Thanks so much. Go raibh maith agat.

Teas, pron. jass or  chass or t'ass.
