How to Pronounce “S” in Irish

Please note that the workshop mentioned in the video took place in 2020. Bitesize Irish members have access to learning material for learning Irish language pronunciation.

The “S” letter is pronounced in two major ways in the Irish language:

  • Broad S which sounds like “ssss” in English
  • Slender S which sounds like “shhh” in English

Watch the video for an explanation of how you can tell the difference.
