It's a Hundred Thousand Welcomes... if you go to the SHarock at the left and click of Gaelic Sayings you will see lots of other expressions and how to pronounce them
Slán go fóill,

Image I'm a learner. Please wait for confirmation on my translations.

So then,

Under phrases to the left shouldn't the words "before you" be added to the translation?

It says céad mile fáilte romhat = a hundred thousand welcomes

It would be confusing to learners that know even less than I do as there is a complete word added. And no I am not trying to be particular :idea:

Often in speech the romhat is left out.

Like in English people ask "how [are] you doing?" and leave out the "are" completely.

I was taught (on here) that it was a hundred thousand welcomes before you. So, is it to you then? Sorry, still don't have my notes unpacked so I need to make sure what I pass on to others.
