Great Job

The Celts had their own set of gods, elves, myths, and folklore stories. This audiobook does a great job showing those.

He's speaking Klingon

Whoever this man is he really commits to the 'ch' in any Irish name that comes up... & they come up pretty often. Hard enough to focus on the story at times.

The "2-aha! day dannon" is I'm guessing the Tuatha de Danann. Other names he butchers I have no clue as to what the real spelling might be. Eochaidh? (Would be pronounced Yukka) He pronounces it something like "Eyokayd"

Definitely needs an Irish narrator/for someone more fluent in Irish to pronounce it & write it down for him phonetically.

Medib = Maedbh (May-v/Maeve)
Coo Kulane = Cú Chullain (Koo Kullan)
Lugayed = Lughaidh (Louis/Lewie)

Just a few of his painful mispronunciations.
