Abhartach, you might consider acknowledging the reply to your question of two weeks ago before asking another one.

Both are ok. If you look up 'grip' or 'hold' in An Foclór Nua Béarla-Gaeilge on 'Foclóir.ie' there are other ways to say it.

If you mean the idiomatic use, rather than the literal meaning, then it wouldn't work.

I'd say something like: Tóg go bog é. Take it easy.

:good:

Or from Foclóir:

get a grip (on yourself)!

coinnigh guaim ort féin!

beir bog ort féin! (Similar to what Bríd offered)
