But I couldn't understand why you wrote CHONA and MAN instead of CHOSA and MAS. Then I went back to the web page with the Beth-Luis-Nion font and discovered that it's f**ked.
In the B-L-F-S-N series the first two, B and L, are correct. But F should have 3 strokes and instead has 4 there; S should have 4 strokes but instead has 5, and N should have 5 strokes but instead has 3. I'm very sorry I didn't notice that originally.

Tá fonn orm mallacht a chur ar an údar a scarfadh a bhod is a mhagairlí dá chorp. Grrrr.
There are some corrections to be made with the noda, too, at least as I see them:
a) You've written "chusa" instead of "chosa".
b) I've never seen 'a' and 's' sharing the same descender, the way you've written in "más".
c) The high 'e' at the end, "é", can't be used in that position. It needs a horizontal element of a following letter to provide the cross bar. You've also left out the fada there.
Beidh sé go hálainn agus ceart an chéad iarracht eile!
