    Of course there is a velar nasal in Irish, written -ng (e.g. long = ship, brionglóid = dream), in Munster dialect even -nn is pronounced as a velar nasal (e.g. Rinn, placename, engl. Ring,)
    And furthermore there is an initial velar nasal in case of eclipsis of the velar plosive g, eg. gairdín = garden, a ngairdín = their garden, ag an ngairdín = by the garden, etc.

    As stated above, this has no business being in the No Velar Nasal category, given that it not only has one, it even has it as an initial in certain grammatical situations.
