A French-speaking friend asked me how to say , ” Sois franc!” in Irish ....  and I am thinking of giving this .... bí neamhbhalbh ! .... Is it anywhere near the truth ? The breton equivalent ?

In Ulster Irish: bí ionraice !
(Neamhbhalbh means “not-mute”...)

In Breton i’d say “lâret ar wirionez !”

Sea, ach tá ciall meafarach leis freisin.

B’fhéidir go mb’fhearr focal nìos comònta (nach mbeadh dèbhrìoch) a dh’ùsàid ina leithèid de chàs…

Cinnte, sin an fáth gur mhol mé ionraic/macánta

Ach níl “neamhbhalbh” neamhchoitianta!

Go raibh míle maith agaibh , a Aonghus agus a Lughaidh. I’ll tell my friend to avoid “neamhbhalbh” for the reasons you give .... and favour rather bí ionraic(e) nó bí macánta.

Sílim go mbeadh “Labhair go hionraic[e]/macánta” níos fearr.
