How would I say "I like being with you?" meaning I like spending time with you......

I know Ba mahith liom is I like but I'm stuck on the "being" part.

Go raibh maith agaibh.

Can any one tell me the correct way to say
" Twenty first birthday"
Is " La Breithe Fiche Aon" correct?
It is for an inscription on a piece of jewelery and I need to get it right !
Regards.

No, again.

Sorry for being so blunt. The reason I don't give the reason, is that I don't consciously know it!

My gut feeling just say's "that's wrong"

Is maith liom caint (I like talk)
or
Is maith liom bheith ag caint (I like to be talking)

(BTW There is an edit icon just beside the print icon on the top right of a post which is handy for fixing typos!)

Bhfuil tú cinnte, a Sheosamh?

Naomh Brónach would be a "sad saint". There is a given name Bronagh - I'm not sure of the spelling.
