Hello everybody, I need your opinion on a curse I heard in the Gaeltacht a long, long time ago.
I just remember the general sense (in English) and so I tried to recreate it as Gaeilge... does it make any sense to you?

"go gcaca (céad) míle muc ort/oraibh"

(thank you in advance!)

Yes. In case you're interested in an alternative, there's also:

Cac an diabhail ort!
May the devil shit on you!
