Hello! First of all- your site is wonderful. I would like to learn
Irish Gaelic. However at the present time, I am in need of a
translation of a phrase from English for a Christmas present for an
Irish loved-one. If you have the resources to translate, I would be
most appreciative- or if you can advise me of someone who can.
the phrase is: If ever you were mine...Thanks for your time and
consideration.

Dá mba liom thú (riamh)
If you were mine (ever)

I would tend to leave the "ever" out

Chuir an bhean seo an cheist chéanna orm cúpla lá ó shin, ag scríohh chuig Focal an Lae. An t-aistriúchán a thug mé di ná "Dá mba liomsa thú." Tá súil agam go bhfuil sí sásta anois!

Hey Mary: the only diff between what I gave you (I see you're the wary type, eagar for a second opinion) is that I put an emphatic ending on "liom", MINE (as opposed to someone else's). Hope you're satisfied now.

Is fearr liomsa liomsa freisin! Níor smaoinigh mé air!

I prefer liomsa, too. I just didn't think of it.
