Hi there,

Can someone help me on on this translation. I would like to put the words 'rest in peace' on my mums headstone in irish but i'm not sure of the right translation.

Is 'Suaimhneas Síoraí' a suitable translation for this.

I have heard of ar dheis de go raibh an anam but isn't that specifically for man/woman or an anamacha for their souls? Its really just Rest in Peace or Eternal Rest that I would like to put on it.

Hope someone can help me on this. Thanks in advance.

I am just a beginner, so please wait for others to comment and more likely correct me..

Suaimhneas Síoraí looks good for "Eternal Peace"

Since this would be for your mum, the other one would be..

Ar dheis Dé go raibh a hanam "May her soul be at God's right hand"

I'm sure others will have more sayings for you. Sorry for your loss..
