Stalking wolf as I am using it shall be used in this way in my book:

"In our language he is called 'the Stalking Wolf'," Sean grinned wickedly. "Because he is relentless in the pursuit of his enemy."

This is a character using the term.

Any help would be great.
Thanks all, James

Here you have an English verb "stalking" used as an adjective, to describe the wolf.

We don't use adjectives like that in Gaeilge, instead we would use a construction "wolf of the stalking".

Unfortunately I don't know the Irish word which would equate with "stalking", the only word I can think of is "sealgaireacht" which means "hunting".

Go with "an faolchú loirg"
