How do you say "Happy Easter" in Irish?

I thought I remembered my teacher saying something about "Cásca faoi shonas duit", but in the dictionary Cásca is just listed as the genitive of Cáisc... Do you actually use the genitive, could Cásca be the nominative form in some dialect or is my memory simply playing tricks on me?

Would be great if one of you could help me out here!
...still at the beginner's stage, so don't take me too seriously... :)
Corrections of my posts greatly appreciated!

Hello Aisling

I think this has been already covered somewhere on the Forum, but here it is anyway:

Cáisc shona duit
or
Cáisc faoi shonas duit doesn't sound too bad either.

Cásca is the possessive form of Cáisc and I, for one, haven't come across it said as "Cásca" in the nominative case.

Three should agree on any translation.

Cáisc shona duit is what I would say.

Big thanks to the two of you!

@Braoin: I was only looking for it in the freq translations section, hadn't noticed the "Search translations" button yet. I'm a clever one... :roll:
