beo, gaire, grá

I dont think it really has the same effect as in english though. someone else might be able to give you a better word for live also.. not sure if it works so well.

I think you are useing these words as verbs, which woudl change the use of beo, and you would use something like 'mair' which means like, 'live', like your telling someone to live..

And then for gaire, you would use déan gaire....

i think :D

Shae, the problem is that "laugh" and "love" aren't normally used as verbs in Irish. In effect, you'd have to substitute something like "make laughter" or "be laughing", and "have love" or "give love." It's shorter and flows better in Irish if you switch to the noun forms of all three:

Beatha, Gáire, Grá
Life, Laughter, Love
