Irish translation:banna
Explanation:
'banna' is the Irish word used for a musical band. It is pronounced 'ba(h)-na(h)' (unfortunately I can't use the phonetic symbols here as far as I know); both 'a' are short as in 'band' (bahnd, not bawnd) and the 'h' is not pronounced. I hope this helps. For single words you might also check the web site below. This site is primarily for new words and phrases that are not part of 'historical' Irish and deals mainly with words that are new to Irish (and most other ancient languages!)
