Today Lá has a heading "tínte tom" meaning bush fires; but tom is "a" bush.

"The bush" (i. scrubland etc) would be better translated by "mongach", "díthreabh" or "fásach".

Aonghuis, a chara,
Go raibh maith agat as an teachtaireacht seo.
I'll try to post some authentic calques with phrasal verbs - from Lá or elsewhere in the North - in the next day or two.
Slán beo!
Chris

They also have this one today:

"Soláthar ar bith go fóill chun ligean d’Iarácaigh vótáil anseo"

...which is supposed to mean, "No provision yet to let Iraqis vote here." Good thing we know English; otherwise they'd have us chronically and hopelessly stumped (if we bothered to spend our time trying to decipher such garbage).

For the people that haven't copped it:

soláthar = provision

but it's "provision" as in "supplies".

Cuntar ar bith go fóill chun ligean d'Iarácaigh vótáil anseo!

'Soláthar ar bith go fóill chun ligean d’Iarácaigh vótáil anseo' -

'Cuntar ar bith go fóill chun ligean d'Iarácaigh vótáil anseo' - Is maith é a Fhear na mBróg.

'Easpa deis vótála ar Iarácaigh na tíre seo fós' - m'iarracht féin.
