Dia dhuit!
This may come as an unusual question, but I have taken some basic
Irish conversation lessons with my girlfriend, and I would like to propose
to her in Irish. How would I say "Will you marry me?" in Irish, and (with
luck) how would she say yes? Go raith maith agat!

When I was young I heard it said that this was the way the question was put.
"Ar mhaith leatsa a bheith curtha le mo mhuintir?"

"would you like to be buried with my people?"
I wouldn't recommend it though.
