I'm looking for a traditional way to say 'Happy Chistmas and happy new year' in Irish, thank all of you for the help.

There are a few ways of expressing both, but try these:

Nollaig shona dhuit = Happy Christmas to you, addressing one person. Change the "dhuit" to "dhaoibh" if you're addressing more than one person.

Bliain nua faoi mhaise dhuit = Happy new year, to one person. See above to address more than one person.

Le meas,

Larry.

I'd say "Ath-bhliain foai mhaise dhuit" for happy new year. But both are right.

Nollaig shona dhaoibh ar fad!
