chara,

You don't have to be fluent in Irish to work in Ireland. If that was a requirement then most Irish people would be out of work. It is however quite difficult to get permission to work in Ireland if you're from somewhare not in the EU, so you'd probably have a bit of a difficult time getting permission because of that.

I'm not clever enough to translate that for you but I'm sure some of our cairde can help you out in a bit.

Beir bua agus beannacht.

Faoi choimirce Aingil,
Faoi threoir Onóir



Seconded what Ríona said on language requirements and permission.

Plenty of Antipodeans here all the same.

yeah well i thought that wed prob hav a bit of trouble pickin upo work but i didnt think havin to speak fluent irish would be a big one, cheers for clearin that up. and is that definately guarded by angels, guided by honour. i really wanna b sure, i tried a few other sites aswell awhile back, the irish translator site came up with,

Cosanta ag aingil, treoraithe ag onóir, and since i dont no the language very well at all (other thatn a few sayins and swearwords;)i dont no which one is right, the reason i asked u guys was cuz i put a few of their translations words into an irish to english dictionary and even then it wasnt quiet right so i jus want to b as sure as possible pls. cheers so much for this.

That's fine too. It's a language, there is more than one way to say any given thing!

Arguably as epigramatical, a possible alternative to (but entirely based on) Aonghus's previous posting - AND subject to opinions, of course:

Aingil ár gcosaint;
Onóir ár dtreorú.

Take the one that takes your fancy. It's your skin.

Casey, I was not suggesting that there was any error or inaccuracy in Aonghus's contribution. Far from it! My suggestion was more a matter of a different style/approach. As in English and other languages, there are many ways of saying things.

Godam?????????????
