Hello, everyone.

This coming Christmas, I plan on surprising my sig. other (who's of Irish ancestry) with a trip to Ireland. Leading up to the plane tickets will be something of a scavenger hunt, and for part of it, I need the following passage translated into Irish:

"Your final gift will not be what it seems. It will be of little monetary value, but will contain great spirit. To find out the location of this gift, consult the person who said this: 'youth is wasted on the young'."

If anyone out there could provide a translation for this (it need not be literal, so long as it conveys the ideas I'm shooting for), I'd be eternally grateful.

Thanks,
Chris
