Can you say "cúig déag d'aois"? It doesn't have to be "cúig déag bliana d'aois"?

I know there's an equivalent for hello, but I can't recall where the fada goes.

Dawn, a chara,

Technically, of course you're correct. I ommitted the 'bliana', as I sometimes do in speech, as it's implied. But yes, you're right. One should include the word.

Le meas,

Larry.

A chairde

"Haigh", "Hóigh or "Hóra" are three of the variations for the word "Hi".

Clare: You're more than welcome to contribute with comments/questions on anything related to Gaeilge. I'm also in the UK.

Le meas,

Larry.

Clare, a chara,

Tá mé go maith, go raibh maith agat.

To say that you hate a particular thing, for example sports programmes, you'd use a construction such as "Is fuath liom cláracha spóirt" - is fuath liom... being the expression - but it's not really appropriate to use that when talking to a person. There are many ways to tell a person to leave you alone if they're bothering you. "Imigh leat!" being one fairly common method that springs to mind which translates as "Go away!", especially when used with an exclamation mark or two if it's being written.

I understand that this may not specifically answer your question but, in my opinion, 'hate' is too strong a word to use when you're referring to a person.

Le meas,

Larry.
