Hello, I need the Irish Gaelic translations for "Grand Mother (Grandma) and Grand Father (Grandpa)" as soon as possible. My brother and sister in law want to find a creative way to tell my parents that they are going to be grandparents <--- how do you say Grandparents in Gaelic also please!
I read that "Daideo" is Grandpa, and "Mamó" is Grandma, are these correct? If so, how do you phonetically pronounce them? Thank you so much!!!
