Bhain an cur chuige a bhí acu croitheadh asam

Subject = an cur chuige a bhí acu = (I think) what they had in for him
Object = croitheadh = wave, jolt

What they had in for him sent a chill through me.

(I think that's what it means. . . ?)

"cur" can mean "burial", by the way -- that's what led me to believe it had negative connotations.

No.

"cur chuige" is approach to something; solving a problem, doing a piece of work etc.

The approach they took shook me.

This is my version

The way they went about it stunned me.

Ní lia duine ná tuairim (there are as many opinions as there are people.)

Ní fheicim móran difear idir ár leaganacha, Kay.

The important thing is to take "cur" and "chuige" together, and the same for "bhain (sé) croitheadh asam"

"cur" in particular is very versatile...see An Foclóir Beag http://www.csis.ul.ie/scripts/focweb/Exe/focloir.exe

Go raibh maith agaibh, a chairde.

The context suggests both Kay and Aonghus could be correct.
The text is from an article in "Beo".

Chaith mé coicís i nGleann Cholm Cille agus bhain an cur chuige a bhí acu croitheadh asam, ós rud é gur chuir na múinteoirí an bhéim ar an teanga labhartha.

Le meas
Antoin

Ná mise, Aonghus -bealach eile chun an rud a dúirt tusa a bhí agam. Ní raibh mé ag fáil aon locht ar an aistriúchán cruinn, beacht, cóir a rinne tusa agus nílim ag dul i gcomórtas leat in aon chor. Bhí mé ag iarraidh a chur in iúl go bhfuil bealaí éagsúla le rudaí a rá.

You are right Aonghus- our friend Niall Ó Dónaill has about six pages on 'chuir' - too much for me to type in here- beidh fear óg ag teacht abhaile ón scoil luath nó mall ag lorg greim le n-ithe.

le mór mheas
Kay

Ná níor cheap mé go raibh tú ag fáil locht orm ná ag dul in iomaíocht liom. Agus ní bheadh fadhbh agam le ceachtar tuairim acu dá mbeidh!
