So as you can tell by my screen name, my last name is Dooley. Seems through research that the Gaelic version of my last name is Ó Dubhlaoich. Can someone help with the pronunciation? Thanks in advance.

The closest I can explain it is "o DOOV-lixh" > the "xh" being like a throated h as in the word "loch" or German "ich".

Get more input on this as I am not a native speaker.
