You're right. It should be "i mbois a láimhe thú."

Only in set phrases. See FGB for examples without the slender ending.
The money-grabbing wankers who control this site can ban me too. Talk about recruiting trolls! I've spent enough time putting money in their pockets.

Hi guys,

I really appreciate the commentary and want to thank you all for looking at this.

I’m just a little confused as to whether or not you have reached a consensus and if so what is it?

Thanks again all,

James
