Hello! I'm Russian but my heart belongs to an Irish guy. He teaches me a little bit of Irish. Recently he wrote me few phrases - I have been struggling to translate them - as far as I understand, there were few mistakes in pronouncation. So would you like to be so kind to help me - where I can find the dictionary that will be able to help me to translate words even though they contain mistakes? Go raibh mile maith agat! The text was:Cad e an chuis a bhfuil se comh deacair? Ta si gan duine gan daonnai. Beidh la eile ag an bPaorach. Ta oiread agat liom fein. Feicfeidh me aris ar ball tu.

Cad é an chúis a bhfuil sé chomh deacair?
= Why is it so difficult?
Tá sí gan duine gan daonnaí.
= She is completely alone.
Beidh lá eile ag an bPaorach.
= There shall be another chance (at it).
Tá oiread agat liom féin.
= You have (just) as much as I have myself.
Feicfidh mé arís ar ball thú.
= I shall see you further anon / in a while.
(I have taken the liberty to help with the vowel accents.)
