Can someone please tell me the Gaelic word for mine? Mine as in the term of possession, not where miners work. Thank you.

It's not a one-word translation, I'm afraid, as it's not a single-word concept in Irish. The simplest form I can think of is "mo cheann" (literally "my one"). If you want to make it emphatic ("MINE!" rather than simply "mine"), you would say "mo cheannsa." If you want to say something like "it's mine," you would say "is liomsa é" (literally "it is with me")
