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

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.
