Is the word "Guardian" Chaomhnóra in Gaelic? If so how is it pronounced and how would I make it plural as in "Guardians?"'

I want to write "The Guardians" and "Guardian" as in those who protect and defend others in both Irish and Gaelic.

Thank you for your help :wink:

guardian = caomhnóir m3

Plural

coimirceoirí - guardians
caomhnóirí - guardians

If you're talking about 'guardian angels', you need another phrase.

The money-grabbing wankers who control this site can ban me too. Talk about recruiting trolls! I've spent enough time putting money in their pockets.

DoireTrasna, Sorry I thought since there were two words for singular and plural, that meant two different translations. Does what you translated mean there are two words for guardian? do you know which one means what I'm looking for?

Thanks for all your help.
