hi,
i need help with a boat name.
it is my first boat and i know no irish apart from my tatoo.
i would like to have an irish name for my boat and was thinking maybe 'free from europe' or 'feck the EU' - i am not a fan of EU and would like to state that on my boat but ot sure what to use. any suggestions would be gladly apreciated (with translation to irish please)
thank you in advance
kieran :guiness:

Perhaps:

Saor ón tAontas Eorpach "Free from the European Union"

or

Saor ón tAE "Free from the EU" (NOTE: the lower case t is not a mistake, that's how it is spelt.)

or

an tAE don diabhail "Feck the EU"

Of the three, my preference is Saor ón tAE, short and sweet. ;)

Await further input ...

Oh, bugger, you're right, of course. :facepalm: And I did so like the look of tAE. :darklaugh:

Saor ón Aontas Eorpach
Saor ón AE
an tAE don diabhail

Anois nach bhfuil siad ceart ?
