The most reliable method is probably to use the babel approach. Here's a  
LaTeX solution:

\initiate at active@char{"}
\addto\extrasirish{\bbl at activate{"}}
\addto\noextrasirish{\bbl at deactivate{"}}
\declare at shorthand{irish}{"-}{\nobreak-\bbl at allowhyphens}



\noindent Some text without particular meaning leading up to the
breakpoint: 3"-pentanone is hyphenated correctly.
