Hello everybody.
I am writing a story and I want to title it in Irish Gaelic.
If anyone could help translate the phrase:
"what you wish for" or "you will get what you wish for"
I would really appreciate it.
So far I have pieced together a few words:
Cad Mianfaidh Tú Daoibh
Would this be right?

Thanks.
Dennis

"Mian do chroí" would be an idiomatic way to say "what you wish for". Literally it means the desire of your heart.

Gheobhaidh tú do mhian would be you'll get what you wish for
