As far as I know, "ogham" is pronounced /o:m/, ie. "ohm"

I don't understand what is your question...

mair means "survive!"
gráigh means "love!" but it isn't common
déan gáire means "laugh!"

Quote:
Ádh na nÉireannach


the luck of the Irish people

He wants those words written in ogham for him.
Breandán will be able to do that.

It is recommended that you always wait for three to agree on a translation.
I speak Connemara Irish, and my input will often reflect that.
I will do an mp3 file on request for short translations.

I'll give a Munster pronunciation (there's no standard pronunciation anyway)

Mair -> marh (rh is a sound that doesnˈt exist in English, you have to hear it, maybe Bríd has already recorded that word in Forvo...?)
Gráigh -> GRAW-igg
Déan Gáire -> dinn GAW-rheh (idem for rh)

Ádh na nÉireannach -> AW nuh NAY-rhuh-nukh (kh is the throat sound as Spanish jota)

He/she's trying for "Live, Love, Laugh" (the single most common Irish tattoo translation request for females...you're going to have TONS of company! Half the world has this one!). As we've often pointed out at IGTF, these quite simply don't work as single-word commands in Irish. The best way to translate them is as nouns: Beatha, Grá, Gáire -- Life, Love, Laughter.

I am actually translating the three words in to ogham no for a tattoo but for a personal project of my own but thanks for the heads up...
