My husband is Irish and we would like to find the gaelic words for grandfather and grandmother. We just had our first grandchild

But people also say:
Mamó, Maimeo, Neain for Granny/Granma (the first two are pronounced Mammo with the emphasis on the second syllable, the third as Nan)
Daideo for Grandda/Granpa (Daddo with the emphasis on the second syllable)
This is what your new grandchild should call you - congratulations, by the way!
