Fear na mBróg (213.94.240.178 - 213.94.240.178)

Take the following scenario:

Máire and Seán are married. People are sitting in a café talking about them:

-Máire and Seán got married last week.
-No way! Was it his decision or hers?
-Don't know to be honest, although I do know that it was her strength that kept them together.
-They bought a currach (a type of boat) the other day. Máire's saying it's her currach, but John is saying that they both paid for it and so it's their currach.

Without using "Is liomsa an naomhóg"!, How would this conversation go as Gaeilge. Would it be like this?:

-Pósadh Máire agus Seán an tseachtain seo caite.
-Níor pósadh! Arbh é a chinneadhsan nó a cinneadhsa?
or would it be:
-Níor pósadh! Arbh é a chinneadh seisean nó a cinneadh sise?
-Níl a fhios agam, cé go bhfuil a fhios agam gurbh é a neartsa a choimeád le chéile iad.
or would it be:
-Níl a fhios agam, cé go bhfuil a fhios agam gurbh é a neart sise a choimeád le chéile iad.
-Cheannaigh siad naomhóg an lá eile. Tá sise ag rá gurb í a naomhógsa, ach tá Seán ag rá gur íoc idir an bheirt aisti agus mar sin gurb í a naomhógsan.
or would it be:
-Cheannaigh siad naomhóg an lá eile. Tá sise ag rá gurb í a naomhóg sise, ach tá Seán ag rá gur íoc idir an bheirt aisti agus mar sin gurb í a naomhóg siadsan.

Mar sin, arbh fhéidir le duine líofa mo chaint bheag a aistriú go Gaeilge le do thoil!

Rud amháin gur theip orm a lua:

a naomhógsan

Ní fios, an leisean í nó an an leosan í?! Sin a bhí i gceist agam.
