Hi,

Would anyone be able to help me with a translation?

What does the Irish Gaelic phrase 'Go raibh a maghat' mean in English?

I have not been able to find a Gaelic to English translator on the net able to translate this phrase. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks,
Amy

You've mis-phrased it

It should be

Go Raibh Maith Agat

and it means

Thank you

Well I'm delighted when I can get you to produce any sort of spasm or bodily function, I wasn't trying to be funny. I was actually trying to help the poor sod. Pray tell what did I say that caused ructions in your nasal passage? Do share man.

I was wondering about the Lord's peculiar behavior as well, Heeven.

Must be because he's English.

Peculiar is when he insists on ME wearing the fishnets and brandishing the lasso.

On the other hand, it could be that the mutterings he renders when I have finished with him, the words he thought were a weak whispered "Thank you", in Irish, hoping to please me and entice me back a week on Thursday, were actually something else altogether.

I'll translate your gibberish for you Lordy, but if I find it to be disrespectful, I'll give you 30 lashes!

I found it highly amusing, to see your avatar looking all serious whilst explaining that the way of saying thank you in Ireland, sounds very much like "Go rape a maggot".

"Here's the fiver I owe ye, Patrick"

"Ah, go rape a maggot!"















Of course, It's not half as funny, now I've had to explain it, but at the time ...................

Can anyone translate ?
stocai dearga abu (accents over the i and u)
I'm not sure if it's Gaelic but it was on a baseball t-shirt with a flag of Ireland, I think. the colors of the flag were green, white and orange.
If it's not Gaelic, does anyone know what it is?

Hi Duhkneez,

The above phrase is Irish-gaelic and translates as "Up the Redstockings!"
Guess the American equivalent would be: Go! Redstockings.

What kind of baseball team dons such elegant attire?
