Dia daoibh!

I have a translation request dear fellows!

Speaker 1 asks speaker 2 "how are you?"
Speaker 2 answers : Tá mé ró-sasta mar cheannaigh mé an carr nua!

The dialect would be Munster

Now I'm pretty crafty when it comes to finding out stuff online but for the life of me I can't find a way to translate that.
The "I am" part is alright, but for "ró-sasta" all I could find is "satiated" but I kind of doubt it's the proper way to translate here because of the context...

Any idea, pretty please?

It should be ró-shásta.

too satisfied -> very happy

Do people really say "róshásta" instead of "sona sásta" or "iontach sásta"?

I've never heard it. It think that's what was meant, but I've never encountered it.

Thank you very much! I guessed it would be something along those lines from the context but the phrasing really had me puzzled here.

In standard Irish ró is stuck to the following word, without a hyphen, except when the following word starts with a vowel:

róshásta vs. ró-eolach, etc.

Personally, I thought róshásta was only used in the negative, e.g., Níl mé róshásta mar bhris an carr nua síos.

I'd say sách sásta or an-sásta in the affirmative. In the affirmative, one might also hear ríshásta or fíorshásta.

But there is no accounting for dialect ...
