My wife asked for a bracelet with this inscription... We're having a hard time figuring out how to pronounce it in English... Thanks in advance. Bob and Kristin

I'm not much for trying to explain pronunciation (I'll let someone else do that), but I'm pretty sure that the inscription should actually read Is Ó Éirinn mé. Hopefully you made a typo here and what you wrote here didn't actually end up on the bracelet!

By the way, I'm no expert and you may want to wait for some more input that either agrees with or refutes my thoughts on the inscription.

Le meas,

Bradford

I've seen it as Is Dé Éirinn mé (I am of or from Ireland). Rough pronunciation (with emphasis on "rough")...iss derin may...sorry...not to good at phonetic renderings!

Hope this helps.

Le meas,

James
