Éire go brách

Tiocfaidh ár lá

And with the older spelling there would be 'seimhiú' dots over the letters before the "H's" - and the letter 'H' wouldn't be there.

Eddie a chara,

I'm advising you to use 'Éirinn', the dative/locative which has always represented itself well in so many utterances such as the one you gave in your initial post.

Many thanks for your swift response,I will use

"Eirinn go brach agus Tiocfaidh ar la"

I will put fadas as you have shown but is it correct to have a capital T after the agus?
Sorry to be a pain in the ass but I beter get it right or there will be hell to pay.

Just to explain I am from Scotland but me da was an official and there was a bit of a republican send off for him,so it's only right it is marked for eternity.

... after the agus?
A small 't' is correct Eddie.

Ádh mór.

I myself would suggest separating the two phrases.

Perhaps:

Éirinn go brách.
Tiocfaidh ár lá.

Or maybe even personalise it a bit:

(if your father's name was Seán):
Tiocfaidh lá Sheáin
