Er, I think it's "Tá grá agam ort"

Could someone check it in a leabhar?

This is some wild goose you got me chasin'. You'd think "I love you" would be easy enough to find in print. It isn't. The reticence of the Irish!

However, in an almost useless phrasebook I found the following translation for "I love (a person.)"

Tá grá agam (do dhuine.)

Now if we replace dhuine with tú we have do tú which is duit (dhuit.)

Tá grá agam dhuit is one of those phrases I've had around for so long that I can't remember where I got it.

Duine ar bith eile?
P.
