I am Irish on my mother's side, and am very interested in my Irish heretidge. Unfortunately, I don't have time to learn the language right now, but I was hoping you could help me by translating a phrase for me into Gaelic.

The phrase is "Strength and Honor". I tried looking in an online Gaelic dictionary, but there were many words that meant strength. I'm looking for a word that has a more broad meaning than just physical strength, one that could include strength of character. Anyone who has seen the movie "Gladiator" would understand the context which the phrase comes from.

I really would like this phrase translated, if anyone could. My email is thementle@yahoo.com, if you could let me know if you can translate it. Thanks

Just a note. This is for a tatoo, so an acuruate translation is rather important, but I figured that wouldn't be too hard with such a short phrase. Also, could you include a pronunciation of the words, so I can say it right if someone asks. Also, does anyone know where I can get a GOOD celtic looking font. Maybe one with some detailing in the letters so I can present a design to the tatoo artist?

Jake, again
