Hello!

Was hoping to get some input on whether I have the correct grammar/translation. This is going to be the name of my farmstead.

"The Enchanted Oak" - An Dhair Dhraíochta

Does that look right to you???

Many thanks!

:good:

There's a special rule about no lenition when certain consonants come together, as with the "n" in an and the "d" in dair in this case.
