A chairde,
I am in a segment of a Theory of Knowledge class that is investigating aspects of linguistics. Someone there apparently knew that I was studying Gaelic and I was volunteered to provide the translation of a simple sentence. I did a quick try in my head but I think it’s wrong. (I know it was)

As not to butcher such a beautiful language I won't repeat what I thought it was. :)

I was hoping, though, that someone better than I at Gaeilge could help...

The sentence is: The boy gave the letter to his mother.

Go raibh maith agaibh,
John Kane

I think just to keep with the 'caol le caol etc'rule, it should be....... 'dá mháthair.'?
