I wonder if someone would be kind enough to translate the phrase "My father's house" or "my father's home" into Gaelic for me. I am having a sign carved for my father's home and would love to have it done in Gaelic.

Thanks
Jim McBride

teach m'athar

But, hey, that's weird. From the perspective of the guy who lives in the house, it's not "teach m'athar", unless of course it belongs to your grandfather!

Dennis,
Thank you for the translation and the sharp eye to my question. When I composed the message, I thought it did sound a bit off, but I knew what I meant. In fact, my father is dead so the sign on the home is a tribute to him. And, more important, your translation would seem to be correct. Thanks again

All the best,
McBride
