Em, sure, they mean "Justice" and "Truth" respectively, but they're Latin, not Irish.

They aren't Irish. They are Latin. Veritas = Truth. I think,and so does a co-worker, that Aequitas is Equality.

As gaeilge I would try Fíor agus ionannas

or, you could try Fírinne agus comhionannas

I'm not sure what the differences are between the two but both sets of words are in my Foclóir Beag.

Hope my Latin to English helps. Hope the Latin to Irish is right.

Le meas,

James

I stand corrected on the Aequitas.

In that case try deleting ionnanas and comhionnanas and inserting cóir.

Le meas,

James

"Aequitas is Equality."


Tut tut for nor knowing that Risteárd ;) , especially when the english word is just a derivative of the latin word.

OK--so go back to my first suggestions. (I thought I was right!)
