Hi again,

Could someone give Connemara translations for the lines below.

"Don't cry"

"I love you"

Thanks much!

Christy

Perhaps:

Ná bí ag caoineadh. "Don't cry" literally "Don't be crying".

Mo ghrá thú ! "I love you!" literally "You are my love".

Be sure to wait for opinions from Bríd and Braoin ...

Thanks, Breandán! I forgot one in my last post:

"A bit sore."

I know this probably needs explanation for proper translastion: it would be a response to the question "How do you feel?" and would indicate the speaker is in a fair amount of pain.

Thanks again!

I wonder if the questions needs to be asked if 'I love you' is to a lover or a child? Might it influence the translation?

Good thought! In this case, it's being said by a man in love with a woman.
