Tá grá againn ort inár gcroí go brách, go gcastar ar a chéile arís sinn. I reversed the order of your phrasing. Does anyone have any other ideas or spot any slip-ups on my part?

Yes a Sheosaimh you're wrong wrong wrong wrong! Grammar spelling, syntax, punctuation, everything wrong! Hang your ceann gaelach in shame! ;)

'nois, Laighneach. Má tá tú chun tabhairt amach mar sin, ar a laghad tabhair do leagan (leasaithe) fhéin.

My version - taking some liberties with the English to give a better Irish version, would be:-

Mairfidh Grá dhuit inár gcroíthe,
go gcastar ar a chéile arís muid.

Love for you will live in our hearts, until we meet again.

Errors, Omissions and lapses of grammar, as ever, excepted.

The spelling is correct. And the punctuation, if you read it right. An gcuirfidís 'croí' insan iolra? An t-uatha a tháinig chugamsa. 'S é aimsir an bhriathair a bhí ag cur as domh -- sheachain leagan Aonghusa an fhadb sin. Aongus's version is fine, except that 'grá' ('love') doesn't need to be in caps. Either 'muid' or 'sinn' will do.
