Dia daoibh!

Just a quick translation assistance needed... how would one (a) spell and (b) pronounce 'Go Away!' in Irish? Heeheehee... 'Shut up' would be nice to know, too :)

Go raibh ma agat! (Is that right? I wonder...)

Go away:
Scrios leat! (strong)
Imigh leat!

Shut up:
Dún do chlab!
or
Éist do bhéal!

Thank you
Go raibh maith agat

Also: bog leat, gread leat, glan leat, bailigh leat, dealaigh leat, etc.

Think of all the English variations (shove off, bugger off, piss off, etc.). Irish is just as productive! :-)
