Dia dhaoibh,

Cad is brí go díreach le 'Beir bua'.
Tá a fhios agam gur beannacht éigin é ach nílim chinnte cad a chiallíonn sé go díreach.


Go raibh maith agaibh.

The English equivalent would be "Sincerely yours." Literally, of course, it means "To Bring Gifts." The full salutation is usually "Beir bua is beannacht," meaning figuratively "Bringing/Sending [you] gifts and blessings." Hope this helps. -- Toma/s

ón bhfoclóir beag
bua [ainmfhocal firinscneach den cheathrú díochlaonadh]
an ceann is fearr i gcomórtas nó in iarracht (bua a fháil); tabharthas ó Dhia (bua cainte, bua ceoil); maitheas, fiúntas (bua dá bhfuil ag an léann); cáilíocht ar leith (cloch bhua).

An brí a bhain mise as beir bua i gconaí ná "go n-eirí leat", go hairithe ós rud é go bhfuil an brí "buachan" ag dul le "beir" freisin, fch:
Is foirm de breith atá beir.
breith [ainm briathartha][ainmfhocal baininscneach den dara díochlaonadh]
tabhairt nó teacht ar an saol (rugadh leanbh di; lá breithe) tabhairt mar thoradh (ubh a bhreith); iompar chun siúil (beir leat é sin); greim a fháil ar, teacht suas le (beir greim air, ní bhéarfaidh sé anois orainn); buachan (rug sé an chraobh leis); dul (beir leat abhaile); druidim le (ag breith suas ar a trí).

Rith an smaoineamh céanna liomsa, a Aonghuis. Shíl mé go raibh duine ag rá "beir ar bua" (get a victory).

Ciallaíonn "Beir bua" "bain bua amach", níl gá leis an "ar"

Beir bua agus beannacht gnáth slí le deireadh a chuir le litir

Is minic a deir Pádraig Naofa "Atrae búaid ocus bennachtain!" in "Agallamh na Seanóirí", ní le slán a chur le daoine, ach nuair a bhuaileann sé leo. Ón nath sin a tháinig "beir bua agus beannacht", is dócha.
