Im planning on getting my family crest(McCarthy) tattooed on my arm soon and i dont want my family motto written in latin. In latin the motto is: "fortis ferox et celer" which translates in english to "strong courageous and swift." I was hoping for some insight on how to correctly say and spell this motto in gaelic. Thanks for any help!

strong equals laidir (fada over the a)

Couragious equals misniuil (fada over u)

swift equals mear (no fadas)

Please wait for someone smarter than me to come along before you commit this to skin.

Ta bron orm a Shuaimhneais a chara.

You must have put your post in while I was writing mine.

To the questioner, use Suaimhneas' answer.
