It is spelt as I spelt it! Garmhic is the genitive of garmhac! ditto for Seanathair/ an tseanathar.

Sorry my answer was so brusk!
It didn't get on my nerves, it was just hard to find an adequate and correct answer. Since I speak the language, I usually don't know the grammatical reason why things are as they are - I just know that that's the way it should be. I'm not terribly good at explaining this to learners, but don't let that discourage you from trying. I am happy if anybody even uses a small bit of the language, I think your T-shirt idea is great.
Go n-eirí an t-ádh leat! (Good luck)

Err... hate to be so picky, but I think there was a typo back there. It should be "seanathair an gharmhic" not "seanathair an garmhic". An bhfuil an ceart agam?
