I need two sentences in Connacht, please.

"You shouldn't have brought her here."

and

"If anyone touches her, I'll kill you all."

Someday I'll be able to do this myself. I know "here" is anseo but that's all I can do. Please help!

A first attempt:

Ní ba chóir dhuit í a thabhairt anseo. (GC) "You shouldn't have brought her here."

Má leagann duine ar bith láimh uirthi, maróidh mé sibh uilig. (GC) "If anyone touches her, I'll kill you all."

Wait for someone like Bríd to go over these and offer more natural suggestions ...

Pretty strong dialogue! I'm not sure about translating it into the Irish, but I could UPS a .45 if needed. :LOL:

Only in Texas. ;) (Oh, and probably in California, where everything is legal. :winkgrin: )

It's alright, Faber. (But thanks for the offer :LOL: ) It's for a fiction novel. They'll probably use swords (or a fireball?) if it comes to that. ;)

Can anyone agree with these? (bump)

I can’t vouch for ní ba chóir (as opposed to níor chóir) and láimh (as opposed to lámh) being the correct forms in Connacht specifically; but assuming that Breandán knows his Connacht stuff (and he usually does) and that these two are correct, the rest all looks good to me.

Always wait for at least three people to agree on a translation, especially if it’s for something permanent.

My translations are usually GU (Ulster Irish), unless CO (Standard Orthography) is requested.

Those two forms came straight from Learning Irish but I am not 100 percent sure about the nuance of the whole from a native perspective.

Just out of interest, the forms in Cois Fhairrge are:

ní ba instead of CO níor
an mba instead of CO ar
nach mba instead of CO nár
go mba instead of CO gur

The dative form láimh is used in the nominative/accusative.
