What does this mean in English "Muintir go deo"? Can someone tell me how to say "Family is Forever" in Irish?

Well, "Muintir go deo" means "Family forever", though there's a few words for family in Irish:

Muintir: family as the entire, extended one, including all relatives, folks.
Teaghlach: family as in household
Clann: family as in offspring

So you can have

Muintir/teaghlach/clann go deo, depending upon what kinda family you do mean.

Oh, sorry, I think I missread before. For family is forever maybe...

Is buan é an teaghlach. (from the archives)

Wait for more opinions, please.

muintir i gcónaí
