another possibility might be an adjective rather than a noun:


= steadfast, persevering

can refer to someone who is a fighter in that he doesn't give up - he sticks with it.

I think trodaí would mean fighter in the sense of a scrapper, i.e., someone prone to use his fists.

As Tadhg explained, buanseasmhach is an adjective, not a noun. It doesn't mean "fighter", but it refers to the quality of being steadfast, persevering.

This is why duplicate threads for the same request cause confusion; people responding on the other thread don't know all the information that has been provided on this thread.
