Hi there, I'm hoping to get some old/different font/spelling suggestions for "Mo dhaid Mo laoch" for a less than original :D planned tattoo.
Many thanks in advance
Ian

I think people are a bit confused by your request (I am, anyway).

If you just want an older font, you have a choice here at the forum: bunchló arsa (check the font choices above the window where you type in your post), to get:

Mo Dhaid, Mo laoch

In order to get the form with a dot over a "d" in place of the modern "dh", you can use the "insert symbol" function in Word (look in you "Insert" menu for that):

Mo Ḋaid, Mo laoċ

As to spelling, are you asking how to write things in Old Irish? The words you want are pretty basic, so even though I'm no expert in Old Irish, I do know that mo laoch would have been mo laoch or mu laoch, even back then, although I don't know when the scribes started putting the dot over the "c", so it may have been written as mo laoc or mu laoc. I doubt that there was any equivalent of daid back then, though. There are a few people who frequent the forum who are trained in Old Irish, but you may have to wait a while for them to respond.

There's a typo.

Mo Ḋaid, Mo Laoċ
