Hello!
I'm throwing a hen/bachelorette party for an Irish friend who lives in the US. It's common for women here to have shirts made with phrases like "Bride Tribe," "Team Bride," or "Bride's Drinking Squad" on the front. I'd like to do something similar, but with an Irish twist. I'd love suggestions for Irish words that I could substitute into one of these phrases. I'm also completely open to other ideas if anyone has something.
Thanks in advance!

For a literal approach:
Foireann na Brídí
The Bride's Team/Crew/Band

Others may have more creative suggestions, so do wait for comments.

Here's another suggestion, but wait for confirmation from the others -

Lucht drabhláis na cóisire na gcearc

- a hen party is also called - cóisir cailleach
