Like that, no, it's incorrect. Like that it would render into English as something like "my pulse of my heart".

If you separated it with a comma, "mo cuisle, mo chroí" it would translate as "my pulse, my heart". To simply say "Pulse of my heart" you would say, in Irish, "cuisle mo chroí". In either case, you wouldn't say this to the person in question, rather, you would say it about them.

If you want to address the person you would use the vocative, "a cuisle mo chroí", "Oh pulse of my heart".

Thank you so very much for your detailed response. I greatly appreciate it :) May I ask if you agree with the other respondent in that there should be an h in cuisle?

There should be a "h" there.

a chuisle mo chroí is correct.

Yes, it's what's known as the vocative - you put the particle 'a' in front of the name of whoever you are addressing, which means that the initial consonant of the name is 'softened' by placing an 'h' just after it. This changes the way it is pronounced - the 'c' pronounced as in 'corner' becomes 'ch' which is pronounced as the 'ch' at the end of 'loch'. If you used the word 'my/mo', that would imply that you were talking about him or her, ie not addressing them directly - mo also 'softens' the initial consonant of the word that follows it.

But the "h" is only in the vocative version, just to be double clear, so if you are writing it somewhere or not talking directly to him, it will not be there.
