My Welsh is not great, but I think it's

peh REH dir

the middle syllable is sort of like "ray" without the final eee (not so dipthong-y)

The last syllable is like German dür in N. Wales, like dir (short "i" like "it") in South Wales

R's are rolled

Welsh is generally accented on the penultimate (second to last) syllable.
