I wanted to have "Bless this house" translated for a painting I am doing for my brothers new home. Can anyone tell me if this is correct? Beannachtaí ar an teach seo.


Go raibh maith agat,

Angie

Coisric an teach seo

The Gaeilge for "Bless yourself" is "Coisric thú féin".

A chairde,
I think Beannachtaí ar an teach seo might be okay - literally "Blessings on this house".
I think coisric comes from Latin consecrare - to consecrate, so you find it in more formally ecclesiastical expressions like Tú féin a choisreacan - to bless yourself - or uisce coisricthe for holy water.
Beir bua agus beannacht!
Chris

"Beannachtaí ar an teach seo" is fine, and the normal usage.

As Chris say, coisric means consecrate rather than bless:

coisreacan [ainm briathartha][ainmfhocal firinscneach den chéad díochlaonadh]
cur ar leith le húsáid i gcomhair cúraimí naofa (eaglais a choisreacan); fíor na croise a ghearradh, beannú (uisce coisricthe; coisric thú féin).
