This is what I got without putting all the extra words to it or trying to change what

you really mean.

Crom ach mura briste.

It just seems that there's too many people out there who think they are experts in

Irish Gaelic forums but when you have an Irish dictionary it does help.

On the update though, I'm glad that you were able to find someone of credibility

because I wasn't so sure either of this either. But when I took Patrick, the Irish

Admin's translation and ran it through my dictionary. This sentence fragment

made much more sense. (Lubtha, ni briste).

I'll definitely keep this person as a huge reference, if he's alright with that.

And you are right about everyone out there on the net in general. I don't think

for the most majority, they really know what they are doing. But you have to

also account for the fact that most of those who are American with Irish descent

may have different dialects and also huge American egos.

Dia dhíbh (God be with you)

I assume you have sorted your original query, but out of curiosity I consulted my old De Bhaldraithe English-Irish dictionary, which translates the phrase 'Better bend than break' as 'Is fearr lúbadh ná briseadh'.

Beir Bua (Success to you, or, literally, Carry victory)
