Dia duit,

I was taught how to bless myself when I was a child, and have forgotten it. could someone please post how to say "In the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Amen." in Irish?

Go raibh maith agat,
Brendan

"In ainm an Athar agus an Mhic agus an Spioraid Naoimh."

Pronunciation is the hard thing to show, but here goes:

in A*-nuhm uhn AH-huhr ah-guhs uh VICK ah-guhs uh SPIH-ridge NEEV (A* = the a in "cat")

Ádh mór!

Don't forget the 'Áiméan' at the end!! (ah-MANE, approximately)

The sign of the cross is one of the things I never forgot from when I was a kid. Sin mar a d'fhoghlaim mise é. Is cuimhin le m'aintíní a dtuismitheoirí ag múineadh na bpaidreacha dóibh as Gaeilge agus iad óg insna fichidí agus mion-triochaidí. Muide an dara glúin leis sin a dhéanamh anseo i Meiriceá mar sin. Gan rud mór a dhéanamh as: ní féidir a rá go raibh an teanga beo i measc mo mhuintire.

'S é do bheatha a Mhuire, atá lán de ghrásta, tá an Tiarna leat.
Is beannaithe thú idir mná agus is beannaithe toradh do bhruinne Íosa.
A Naomh Mhuire, a mháthair Dé, guí orainn na peacaithe, anois agus ar uair ár mbáis.

Some of these spellings are unintentionally pretty funny:

who = thú
knave worra = a Naomh Mhuire

Ta ceart. At first I thought a few Irish words had been left out, but some help from Dennis' message clears that up. Go raibh maith agat.

In case Fi doesn't know, this is the Hail Mary, a common prayer.
