I've been all over the web trying to find correct translations but seem to get numerous different translations. I just need "Faith, Family & Friends" translated to Irish please. Thank you very much!

Ben

I'll start the ball rolling:

Creideamh, Muintir agus Cairde

Note: teaghlach can also mean family, but I choose muintir for the sense of kinsfolk rather than the nuclear family or household - need confirmation on that...

Yes, that would be a fairly standard translation for those words. :yes:

If you want something with alliteration, perhaps:

Creideamh, Comhluadar agus Cairde

Await further input ...

Both suggestions have been good so far. The first is more literal than the second. Comhluadar means "companionship"

What is the difference between Gaolta, Muintir and Comhluadar?


"Creideamh, Gaolta, agus Cairde" is one stranslation I was given.

I'm trying to do the most research on this as it will be engraved on a piece of jewelry. Thank you everybody so much for the help!

Except amongst the biggest group of native speakers of Irish, where it means "family" first and "company/companionship" second. ;)

Gaolta are your blood relations.

Muintir is similar but can extend to close family friends, or the people of a region. It really means "people, folk" but is often the closest in meaning to "extended family".

I would say, " Creideamh-Muíntir-Cairde" Belief-People-Friends.


Hope this helps,
Faberm

Okay Ben....just disregard the accent over my word Muintir. Otherwise...I think mine is simple and gives the idea you're looking for.
