Thank you so much for this forum! This is my first time utilizing a forum, so please accept my apologies if I am doing something incorrectly.

Would "Association (or Assembly or Group) of Brehons" be "Dáil na Brithemain" in Old Irish?

I am guessing based on a little research, so I would not be surprised if there is a better spelling/phrasing (and many alternatives). While I am most interested in Old Irish, I am also interested in Munster Irish and standard Irish, if possible. Míle buíochas.

Thanks so much, djwebb2021! Comhthionól seems a lot better than dáil. What dialect is "Comhthionól na mBreithiún"?

To take the advice at viewtopic.php?f=28&t=50, anyone else agree with the translation? Or anyone suggest another one in Old Irish, Munster Irish, or Standard Irish?

Seems like a good translation to me.

Taking it into Old Irish requires very little change since Comhthionól is a very old word. It's really just a slight change in spelling conventions:

Comthinól na mbretheman

In Early Old Irish you might see things like "Comthínól inna", but the above is the Classical Old Irish forms. "Bretheman" itself also had spelling variations like "Brithemon" and so forth. Spelling was not as fixed in the Old Irish period and modern authors make different choices when regularising the language for critical editions today.
