The Irish word “aon” can have a couple of different meanings. Depending on context, it can mean “one” or “any.” But it NEVER means “no.”


"Never" is a bit strong ;)
As a reply to the question "An bhfuil aon imní agat?" the answer might be simply "Aon imní." with the meaning "No worry."

Erin go bragh


Erin go bragh is a well established anglicized version of Éirinn go brách (or ... bráth, as spelled in 18th c.)
It isn't Gaeilge but it isn't wrong at all to use this phrase.

But you wouldn't just say "aon imní" unless it were in answer to something.

The point of the post is it isn't Irish for anything, no matter how well-established it is. I get tired of people telling me that "Erin go Bragh is 'Gaelic' for 'Ireland Forever.'"
