Hey,

I am moving to Ireland in a few weeks, and i really need some translation help with an important tattoo. The word that I want to be translated is simply ”LUCKY” to Irish. I have used many internet translators and ”ádh” is what i get - but i just want to be sure if it’s in a right context and i dont end up taking something else to my skin.
Thank you :)

Well -ádh - on it's own, simply means - luck. There are two words for lucky - ámharach - and - ádhúil.
You could say this - Tá an t-ádh orm - which is the equivalent of saying - I'm lucky.

All good. :good:
For the sake of brevity, ádhúil seems best.
