    AWESOME!!!

    Any chance I can get it sent in a larger text? I know I’m being needy…sorry. When I screen shot this and enlarge it, it just becomes pixelated beyond legibility.

    Can anyone put it in the unical script? At least that’s what I think it’s called.

    Le meas,

    Is fear briste mé ach slánóidh an grá mé

    This seems the closest to what I’m trying to convey…

    If I can get two or three general agreements on the structure and translation…..??

    I understand the idiomatic translations are problematic.

    What I’m after is not the broken heart…but broken in every sense…heart, mind, body….and that love…of all kinds, Spiritual, familial, romantic….they are all part of the healing process.

    So…that’s what I’m sticking with something simple.

    I am a broken man, but through love I am made whole.

    Is fear briste me seems pretty straightforward. It’s the “made whole” aspect that I want to capture which is why I think “slan” or some derivative would convey that meaning.

    Thoughts?

    What I’m after is the broken aspect.

    Broken but healed (made whole) through love.

    This is going on skin (at 52 years of age…) so it has to be correct.

    Is Aonghus still hanging around this board? Or Lughaidh?

    I’d love to get their input.

    Agreed re: the copula. I thought of that after posting.

    A Aonghuis, mo chara…is feadh i bhfad!

    My brother was specific about the “sword” component as he is a swordsman in his re enactment group.

    Domsa a iompraím mo chlaíomh
    Don rang a iompraím mo sciath

    would this make sense to you.

    go raibh mile maith agat…aris!

    mh is pronounced as a “w” or a “v” in simple terms. When at the end of a word, it is almost always the “v” sound.

    Did all that….still no success. This firmly falls into the category of “if it ain’t broke…don’t fix it!”

    Not happy with TG4 right now.
