I know there are several ways to say this. Would this be one of them:

Tá Gaeilge roinnt agam

Thanks again in advance :dog:

No.

Tá roinnt Gaeilge agam.

Roinnt isn't an adjective. It cannot follow another noun as an adjective would do.
Roinnt is a noun, meaning "share". So roinnt Gaeilge "a share of Irish" > some Irish
