Dear All,
Hello from France!

I am preparing an audition to join an "Acting in English" class and I have chosen an excerpt from "Deirdre of the Sorrows" by John M. Synge.

I would like to know the exact pronunciation of the following names/words :

Deirdre
Naisi
Ainnle
Ardan
Glen da Ruadh
Emain

Many thanks !!!
