Ní rabhas - he seems to have the English r there.

Yes I think so.

To me it sounds different than a broad flap, something closer to this Cork speaker doing a slender tap for 'cigire' https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bz2SauVFkSc at 3:24. Let me know what you make of the comparison though, I will fully admit that I do not yet have a developed ear for discerning Irish r sounds, but dammit am I trying :LOL:.

They are great speakers. It's a shame that is the only video I've ever seen of them. I don't think they podcast or videocast regularly. Have you ever found anything else by either of them, Seán or Donncha?

Yeah they're nice to listen to and certainly Donncha has lovely Irish all in all, even if he's using some English r's.
I think one of his parents is a Corca Dhuibhne native speaker but he grew up in Dublin and went to a Gaelscoil, which would explain the r's. I don't think I've ever heard a Dublin school speaker use a non-English r, let alone know that Irish r's are different.
In terms of podcasts or the like I'm not sure and honestly I haven't gone looking, although I believe that Donncha does the weather on TG4! https://www.tg4.ie/en/information/press/press-releases/2020-2/tg4s-new-weather-presenters/ (or at least did the weather in 2020 for a bit).

I've now realised that he did report in one of the Vifax videos now moved to snas.ie - see https://snas.ie/lessons/an-naomh-eanna/ and the PDF at the side has a full transcript of what he is saying.

Food for thought on the 'r' in 'raibh'. Came across this rather accidentally, from Ceanntuigheoireacht in this thread:

The r in raibh and fearaibh is slender.


Perhaps there's a sandhi thing with raibh in Ring.
