This seems to be an odd gap in my education. If I'm introduced to someone in Irish, how would I say something like "I'm pleased to meet you/make your acquaintance"?

Is deas casadh leat
It's nice to meet you

Just an idea -- I don't know if that's actually something that would be said, or not.

What's you often hear is [Is] Deas bualadh leat (usually the "is" is dropped)

I'll just add that the most common thing to say after you're introduced to someone is Cad é mar atá tú or variants thereof. So the reason why you didn't know how to say "I'm pleased to meet you" is that it's not as commonly said in Irish.

Tá áthas orm bualadh leat is what I'd say

Followed by "Nach dtomhaisfidh tú m'ainm?"

:twisted: (literally!) Hee!
