Ok, the last one I'm going to ask to have translated is the whole phrase.

"Honor (or remember) your ancestors, for you are the result of a thousand loves"

Perhaps this has a more direct translation?
Sorry to ask so many questions guys, I just want to be really sure that I make the right choice.
Many thanks.

Tabhair onóir do do shinsear mar is tusa a rugadh ó mhíle grá.
Honour your ancestors for it is you that are born of a thousand loves.

Ah, it's been a journey trying to get a translation that I love in both languages. I'm just going to ask if I may for following translations so I have different options to pick from. I do understand if you have all tired from assisting me. It's been much more complex than I anticipated and I appreciate all input thus far.
● Ancestors
● Ancestral loves.
● Thousand loves (no 'of' or 'result')
● Those who journeyed (OR walked) before us.
● Honour your ancestors.
Or if anyone knows of a phrase with similar meaning/direction I'm open to suggestion.
Many, many thanks.

Mostly keen for translation on 'Those who journeyed before us' and 'ancestral loves' if anyone can help. I'm hoping to find something that translates to same words in both languages.
Thank you.

Ancestral loves - Gaolta shinsearacha
Thousand loves - Míle gaol (grá)
I used ‘gaol’ rather than 'grá' here because it implies a relationship as well as love.

Those who went before us - Na daoine (Iad sin) a chuaigh romhainn
……. who journeyed/walked ….. - ……….a shiúil……
The one verb can mean either here.

Honour your ancestors I have already given - tabhair onóir do do shinsear
