well well well...you're all wonderful people, what a wealth of responses, not to my my original and humble request to help a family out at a rough time, but only to defend yourselves and this forum. I was not at all surprised to see a bunch of replies to this...all it did was confirm my suspicions that you're pretty much a pack of back-slapping wanna be paddies.

Al Evans...I was expecting one like this, again, I was originally hoping to get a positive response and then provide the translation when it was given to me by the grieving family ( pretty obvious really )...maybe you'd have me call them and tell them to get the finger out since al evans won't wait around 'til you've finished mourning?

James...that's an incredible grasp of grammar as gaeilge...I seem to recall admitting I was no expert but if it makes you feel better to flex your grammatical muscles then go ahead my friend, what a pity you couldn't have put your knowledge of the language to better use and help out a grieving family

Paul...why don't you just suck Larry's cock....there's some obscenity for you James

Daithi...this would be a great forum if a request like mine was answered..at all, even to say that kind of thing isn't done here. My friend, if you feel that my request "diminished" this site then I truly feel sorry for you

Larry....see my reply to Paul above...I think you three would be perfect for each other.

To finish, one person actually responded to me personally, which is why I posted my email address. This person admitted he was no expert but at least had the decency to offer his or someone elses services...thank you so much Dennis. As for the rest of you, nothing for my initial request and then a torrent as soon as I called your integrity into question.

Methinks thou doth protest too much.

Mister Malcontent, A chara,

Relax, buddy. You opened this can of worms, not us. You ask for a translation yet provide NO guidance as to what would be appropriate. We don't know this family, nor do we know the deceased. If anyone is in a position to offer some suggestions of what to put on a tombstone it would be you!

As for my "flexing my grammar muscles" again I say--RELAX. I'm brand new at this stuff. That's just about the limit of what little grammar I DO happen to grasp.

With regard to helping a grieving family---I do it every day, buddy. EVERY single day so don't get sanctimonious (check my spelling on that one, I think I'm off base.)

Regarding your comment "Back-slapping, wannabe paddies"--be careful. Some of us (not me mind you) are genuine real live Irishmen. Most of us have never even met one another so any back-slapping is purely electronic. So, it appears that this position of yours holds NO water.

My guess is that you are a decent kid who was sincerely trying to help. Let go of the obscenities and make it a little easier to like you. I want to, honestly I do, but you're making it REAL hard.

Now, since we both have adequately challenged one another as to the relative velocity and quantity of our urinary capabilities---next time you need something from us, send a more complete request. If you do so in an open forum you will get MORE responses and we ALL can learn more about the language and culture that we have in common.

Suaimhneas agat,

Le meas,

James.

Perhaps, you might what to start your own website and call it "HowDoYouSayXInIrish.com".

I'm sure that'll be absolutely riveting...


Dump the attitude. It might help more than you might imagine.

Hey Scoobter, that was way wrong!
