Colm Tóibín

I'm very bad with accent marks in languages other than English.

Lately, I've been reading and admiring short stories by Irish author Colm Tóibín, and I'd like to be able to pronounce his name correctly.

Is the first name like "comb" but with an "l" in it? And is the surname pronounced like TOY-bin, or some other way?
