A Chairde,

I need help translating a few thing properly. These sayings will be made into plaques that will adorn certain walls in a hall above Irish heroes and patriots.

The Final Journey
Honouring our Dead
Hounouring our Fallen
Our Fenian Dead

Ireland unfree, shall never be at peace.

Go raibh maith agat,

Kevin

Dia duit, Kevin,
I wil do my best to help you out.

The Final Journey
An Turas Deireanach

(turas: journey/trip)
deireanach (last/final)

Honouring our Dead
Le hurraim do na mairbh
or
Le hurraim d'ár mairbh

( urraim / onóir : honour
na mairbh : the dead
Dealbh a thógáil le hurraim do dhuine: To erect a statue in honour of someone
"ár" : our)

Honouring our Fallen
In onóir ár mairbh

( the word for "dead" and "fallen", where "fallen" means those who died on the battlefield is the same, "mairbh", so I have used the word "onóir" instead of urraim to distinguish between the phrases 1 & 2)


Our Fenian Dead
ár bhFíníní marbha

( The "á" in "ár" should begin with a capital "A", but I don't know how to put a vowel length mark ( fada) on a capital.
I am not sure if "marbha" is correct in this phrase, something tells me the adjective has to agree in number with the noun, but I have guessed this. Maybe Seosamh could take a look at these translations. They should be correct if they are going to be in a public place.)

I hope this has helped you out,
Seosaimhín

Thanks so much. It was very important to us, and somewhat time sensitive.
