Hi,

I'm designing Thank You cards at the moment, and I wasn't sure if it was more correct to put "Go raibh maith agat" on the outside or "Go raibh maith agaibh".

The majority of people receiving the cards will be couples - i.e. plural, but could someone please tell me which is grammatically correct.

go raibh maith agaibh go léir,
Jean

Jean, a chara,

You would use "agat" when addressing one person, and "agaibh" when addressing more than one person.

Le meas,
Larry.
