Does anyone knows the meaning of "please" in the opposit site of "thank you" in irisch gaelic. Many posts I have found with the context "please help me", but if I put "please" in the translation formular, I have got this answer: "Sorry, no results found. Please try the additional search options."

And this is if you're pleasing/thanking one person. If you're talking to multiple people:

Le bhur dtoil

Go raibh maith agaibh

I’m not sure if I understand you quite correctly here. By “in the opposite site of »thank you«”, do you mean as a reply to ‘thank you’? As in this type of dialogue in German? :
Danke schön.
— Bitte.


’Cause if that’s what you’re referring to, the answers you’ve been given so far are not what you’re looking for. Le do thoil/le bhur dtoil means ‘please’ in the other sense of ‘please help me’; as a reply to thank you, in the ‘you’re welcome’ sense, you’d use Tá fáilte romhat or Fadhb ar bith or a host of other phrases. Unlike German (and, to some extent, English), Irish has no specific, set word that’s always used as a polite reply to ‘thank you’—there’s a lot more variation in the replies given.
Not a native speaker. If in doubt, await native confirmation.
