I'm also unsure of the pronunciation - I've never heard of this name before. I love the connection to Irish mythology however.

Here, the word January is being pronounced in Gaelic. The 'air' ending is apparently 'arr'
http://www.forvo.com/word/hugh_mc_diarmid/#en < That's how you say the 'mid' part. Kind of like a smoosh of 'met/mut/mot'
Together these would make the pronunciation of Airmid = 'arr-met'. Therefore, Armet/Ahmet/Aremet would mostly likely be the closest you could write Airmid in English.

I second Renrose suggestion, Armet/Aremet would be your best betDelicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns. ~George Eliot
