Hello everyone,

I'd like to get this saying as a tattoo in memory of my grandad who passed away earlier this year. It was something he always said to me and something that i will always remember him by.

I would be very grateful if someone could translate it into gaelic for me!

"Irish eyes are always smiling"

Thankyou!

Becky

Maybe:

Thank you so so much!

Is there a shorter sentence at all? The only reason is because I'm looking to get it tattooed on the back of my neck!!

Thanks again!

Unfortunately Irish is usually wordier than English. Wait around for other opinions.
