hello...I am writing a dedication which contains a sentence structure that I fear is a bit out of my league...
"For my dearest and most Gaeilge-minded friends"

also...what would be the best way to say "Welcome to Gaeilge"? I can think of three, but I'm not sure if one is idiomatically more correct than the others.

le buíochas,
Antaine

"For my dearest and most Gaeilge-minded friends"

Not sure what "Gaeilge minded" means

But I suggest
"Do mo dlúth chairde, a bhfuil grá laidir acu don Ghaeilge"
For my close friends, who have a strong love of Irish.

"Welcome to Gaeilge"
Fáilte go dtí an teanga Gaeilge
- welcome to the Irish Language

go raibh maith agat...that's exactly what I was looking for with the dedication.

could one use a simpler construction - perhaps with "chun" - for the other part? FJilte chun Gaeilge - unless I'm misunderstanding chun...


le buochas ars,
Antaine

Antaine a chara,
I don't think you could really use "chun" in that way its not really grammatically correct.
