Dia duit! How would this be said in Gaeilgi? "See you soon." I'm think of two senses here. First sense meaning some indefinite time in the future. The second sense a very short time in the future. As in "see you real soon", e.g. later today, tomorrow, etc. What about the phrase "talk with you later" (indefinite future)?

Go raibth maith agat! bob

For the phrase "See you soon", I would be inclined to say "Slán go fóill" (Slawn guh foyle)* , which would be the Irish equivalent of "Bye for now". I think this could be used in either of the contexts mentioned above, or you might prefer "Feicfidh mé níos moille thú" (Feck-hee meh nees mwill-yuh hoo).
As for "Talk to you later", a literal translation would be "Labharfaidh mé leat níos moille" (Lawr-hee meh lyat nees mwill-yuh).
Anyone got any better suggestions?
