    "Concerning Pre-aspiration
    It signifies the placing of an h-like sound before certain consonants. Voiceless consonants (t, c, p) are usually pre-aspirated when they follow a stressed vowel. Pre-aspiration takes the form of voiceless breathing /h/ before each of the consonants. It may be realized as a 'ch' especially before c."
    So, I repeat what I said above - "mac" in Gaelic is always pronounced with a pre-aspiration of the "c" i.e. "machk"' A terminal "g" is always pronounced "k".
    Hence "Mach(k)-Yanreek"
