Hi,
My brother is getting married in 3 weeks and I have been searching for a Gaelic toast of sorts. I found this and was told roughly what it means but need to know for sure.

Slainte go saol agat,
Bean ar do mhian agat.
Leanbh gach blian agat,
is solas na bhflaitheas tareis antsail seo agat.

I wanted to have it and its translation done in calligraphy for my brother-and hopefully learn the pronunciation so I can say it.

Any help-I would appreciate.

Sláinte agus saol agat,
bean ar do mhian agat,
leanbh gach bliain agat
is talamh gan chíos agat
ón mbliain seo amach.

Health and life to you
a woman when you want her,
a child every year
and land without rent
from this year on.

Your last line doesn't run as well, I feel, and it's not something I have heard too often.
(and {may} you have Heaven's light after this life here
< is solas na bhFlaitheas tar éis an tsaoil seo agat)

Ádh mór.
