Is there somebody who want this poem, translate in Irish or Welsh!!

May the road rise to meat you,
may the wind be always at your back,
may the sun shine warm upon yore face.
The rain falls softs upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
may god hold you in the palm of his hand.

many thanks and greetings Joyce

I don't know much Irish , but this is such a well known Irish Blessing it's fairly easy to translate as it's printed on many Irish souvenirs

Go n-éirí an bóthar leat
Go raibh an ghaoth go brách ag do chúl
Go lonraí an ghrian go te ar d'aghaidh
Go dtite an bháisteach go mín ar do pháirceanna
Agus go mbuailimid le chéile arís,
Go gcoinní Dia i mbos A láimhe thú.

Now Welsh. Maybe somebody here can do it. I know i can't

This is fairly difficult trying to stick as closely to the English as possible.

Gall fod y ffordd yn ymgodi i ymuno â chi
Gall fod y gwynt wastad ar eich cefn chi
Gall fod yr haul yn disgleirio yn dwym ar eich wyneb chi
Gall fod y glaw yn disgyn yn feddal ar eich meysydd chi
Ac hyd nes ini gyfarfod â'n gilydd eto,
Gall fod Duw yn eich cyfatal chi yn Ei Balfau Ef

Keep this, see how you like it and let me correct it if I become displeased with it!!!! smile.gif

That was so nice of you, Cù Dubh and Siarls! smile.gif

I have a small question. It's about the Lament for MacCrimmon, date written 1745 (so I think the problem may be that the language is a bit archaic). This is the most beautiful song! I am working on it to sing it, and I pretty much have it translated except for this one word: "eudann". I did not even find it in MacBain's etymological dictionary. Here is the context:

Dh'iadh ceò nan stùc
Mu eudann Chuilinn,
Is sheinn 'bhean-shìth
A torman mulaid. . .


It occurs to me that it may be an old spelling for "aodann," which makes some sense in the context I guess. Does that sound reasonable to you?

According to Dwelly's dictionary:

eudann - see aodann
