How would you say "Remember the Promise" in Gaelic?

"cuimhnigh ar an gealúint" is dócha go ndéanfaidh sé sin an jab

Maith go leor, ach ná déan dearmad ar an urú (nó séimhiú):

Cuimhnigh ar an ngealúint.

The first consonant of 'gealúint' needs to be modified in this context. (Just in case this is for something permanent or formal like a book, a tatoo or stained glass.)

Also, the spelling! All the offspring of the verb "geall" have two l's: geallúint, gealladh, gealltanas. Incidentally, I think "gealltanas" is the most widely accepted word for "promise".

Cuimhnigh ar an ngeallúint.

Cuimhnigh ar an ngealltanas.

Both are correct. I would go with the first one.
