Is dócha go bhfuil tú an a ghránna ar fad agus nuair atá tú ag imirt peile - bíonn tú ag canadh cosúil le cailín beag. (Shouldn't it be 'ann' after 'tú'?)

(I forgot the 'ag')

I don't quite understand the sentence. I understand "It's likely that you are very ugly and when you are playing football - you are singing like a little girl".

If it's what you meant, it should be:

Is dócha go bhfuil tú an-ghránna ar fad agus nuair a bhíonn tú ag imirt peile, bíonn tú ag canadh cosúil le cailín beag.

Yes, and the Munster version of the prefix an- is ana-. Whereas an- follows DNTLS rules, ana- doesn't have to because of the intervening -a-.

Bhuel it wasn't me Sir that wrote it, and it wasn't even her, honest! - and she wanted to know if it's the right way of saying -
I suppose that you are really ugly and when you are playing football, you sing like a little girl. - And what she wants to know is - does canadh as it's used here mean cry rather than sing? This is how Italians talk about football players.

To cry is "caoineadh" or "gol". "Canadh" is "to sing" in some places.

Breandán > char aithnigh mé gur "ana-" a bhí ann, ó tharla nach rabh sé scríofaí mar is ceart, chreid mé gur meancóg a bhí ann :)
