My older sister just told us she was pregnant, and my mom being only 46 didn't want to be called the traditional grandma. And seeing as our background is Irish we were wondering what the informal way to say grandmother is in Gaelic. Or different nicknames children would call grandma. Thanks

Hi Tara

the way we say Grandma or Granny as gaeilge is "Mamó". Hope your Mam likes it :)
