I was just given a wedding ring with the words Gra Geal Mo Chroi inscribed on the ring. And I know what part of it says, but could someone please translate it for me? Thank you.
A aislingeach álainn, dúisigh le mo thaobh,

Tá callán an domhain ag codladh anois
Cealgtha le solas na gealaí, a chroí

I'm hoping it's properly spelled as "Grá Geal Mo Chroí." If so, it means "bright love of my heart."

It is. And thank you. My computer doesn't have the fonts to be able to do the accent marks.

Sure it does. You just have to know how to make them.

When you're here, you just have to click on the appropriate buttons above the posting form. All the accented vowels are there.

Irish words are misspelled without the accent marks, and can even change meaning, which is why we belabor the point.

I guess I need to play more with my computer to see if I can figure out how to do the marks. :) Thank you so much for telling me what the ring meant. I looked through some of the other posts and had a rough idea but wasn't quite certain.
