Is mian le mo dheirfiúr cibé rud a dhéanaim a dhéanamh

X a dhéanamh = to do X

X: cibé rud a dhéanaim = whatever I do

sounds a bit weird to me because of the 2 forms of "déan" one after the other.
Maybe it would be bettet to say : Cibé rud a dhéanaim, is mian le mo dheirfiúr é a dhéanamh.
Or: Cibé rud a ghéanfainn, bíonn mo dheirfear ag iarraidh a dhéanamh fosta.

And - She needs me - which one is better ?

Teastaíonn sí mé féin

or - Tá mise ag teastáil uaithi

It depends:
Teastaím uaithi gach lá is gach oíche.= She needs me every day and night.
Tá mé ag teastáil uaithi anois. = She needs me now.

I wasn't paying attention properly when I looked this verb up in the dictionary - I simply assumed that it meant - I need (active mood), when in fact it means - it is needed by me/be needed (which would be a kind of passive, I suppose). It's a bit like the French verb: manquer - elle me manque = I miss her. Are there other verbs that function like this in Irish?
Here, it would mean every night.
