    I thought it was more like “gi,” as in “corgi.”

    Welsh, like all Celtic languages has initial consonant mutation. “Ci” can sometimes be “gi” or “chi” or even “ngi.”

    In Irish Gaelic, the mutation is either indicated by an “h” after the consonant to be mutated, or by a consonant before the consonant which “eclipses” the consonant, substituting the prior consonant for the following one.

    Dogs CAN be the keys to finding criminals or disaster victims.
    Frank Siegle, what you write regarding Irish Gaelic consonants sounds just like a reading lesson for English diphthongs (two vowels): when two walk together, the one that appears first is the one sounded, such as OA, EA, and AI.
