I was wondering if someone could help me translate an admittedly strange phrase into Irish? The phrase is

Quote:
There are no goats on Thelios


I haven't spoken Irish now in about 15 years so the closest I can come with google translate and an Irish language dictionary is

Quote:
Níl aon ghabhair ar Thelios


I was wondering if anyone would be able to tell me if this translation is any good or if there are any ways to improve it?

Thanks in advance.

To me Aon (one) before a plural noun Goats looks slighty odd without 'ar bith' (at all), I think
And maybe it doesn't need the Aon at all
Níl gabhair ar bith ar Thelios - There are no goats at all on Thelios

Wait for others to chip in, I'm a learner
