Hello. I am working on a painting for my grandfather based upon one of our family stories and wish to incorporate a certain phrase in Irish. Unfortunately, my knowledge of the Irish language is very limited and I know I'd only create a nonsensical mess. So if anyone could help, it would be wonderful. :) The phrase is:

"Like my fathers before me, I am shown the way."

I'm not too particular about the translation. I know the phrase may suffer some rearrangement or the like, I'm really just looking for the sentiment and meaning behind the phrase.

Thank you very much! :)

Aon leagan eile? Any other versions?
