Katakana are used to write foreign import words like coffee, icecream, baseball. As with Hiragana, u and i are sometimes silent.
e.g.
icecream
アイスクリーム
aisukurīmu
is pronounced aiskrīmu
The two silent letters u have been added because of the limited number of syllables available in Japanese.

McDonald's
マクドナルド
Makudonarudo
is pronounced Makdonarudo where the R sounds like something between English R and L.
