I'm doing an oil painting, hopefully to be completed tomorrow. I'm going to donate it to Daltaí so they can raffle it off. It was inspired by the "Ethel Abú" tshirts and is very symbolic. I was going to put an explanation on the back of the canvas. I have it written out in english, and was wondering if someone would be so kind as to translate it into Gaeilge...i want to make sure that what i put on the back of the canvas with oil paint is grammatically correct, which is why i'm not doing it myself as yet. here is the béarla:

This painting depicts Ethel, founder of Daltaí na Gaeilge. Her victory is heralded by Raftery, the blind poet and Eamonn de Valera, who fought to save the language. Raftery is blindfolded and de Valera, who was obsessive about his gold fáinne, is depicted holding a giant gold ring. They are supporting a banner that reads Ethel Abú.

Her banner reads Tír gan Teanga, Tír gan anam, the motto of Daltaí na Gaeilge. It is topped with a Phyrgian cap. On her shield is the Salmon of Knowledge, the symbol of Daltaí na Gaeilge, and in her other hand are shamrocks, a symbol of Ireland. Under her feet are symbols of detriments to the Irish language. The slain lion and rose are symbols of the English monarchy. The orange drape is a symbol of Irish resistence to the language, and the tally stick was used to expunge the language from generations of Irish youth.

You should post a picture of the painting when you get a chance. I'd like to see it. I am an artist and thought about donating an Irish landscape painting I did in watercolor.

Antaine:

The URLs on your images are all "file:///..." URLs, which refer to files on your own machine. Nobody else can see them. You need to transfer them to the server, and use URLs like "http://..."

Hope this helps.

alright...fixed it...i think...the pictures are now defined not as file:// but as the title relative to the page (they were always on the server, the page just didn't know that it needed to look there instead of my hd).the ethel one is being touched up to add depth, and i'll take a better picture after that...

let me know if there's still a problem

Antaine,

Here is my effort.
Le gach dea guí chugat:

Taispeánann an pictiúr seo Ethel, bunaitheoir Dhaltaí na Gaeilge. Tá a bua á fhógairt ag Raiftearaí, an file dall, agus ag Eamonn De Valera, a throid chun an teanga a shábháil. Tá daillicín ar Raiftearaí agus tá De Valera, ar mhór leis a fháinne óir, á thaispeáint le fáinne óir ollmhór. Tá bratach á iompair acu, Is é “Ethel Abú” atá scríofa uirthi

Tá na focail “Tír gan Teanga, tír gan anam, mana Dhaltaí na Gaeilge ar bhratach Ethel. Tá caipín saoirseachta ar a barr. Tá an Bradán Feasa, comhartha Dhaltaí na Gaeilge, ar a sciath agus sa láimh eile aici tá seamróga, comhartha na hÉireann. Tá comharthaí dochair don teanga gaelach faoina cosa aici. Is comhartha mhonarcacht Shasana iad an leon marbh agus an rós. Is comhartha é an clúdach buí do chur i gcoinne teanga na nGael agus d’úsáideadh an bata scoir chun an Ghaeilge a choimeád ó ghlúine óga Éireannacha.
