Dia Dhuit

hello everyone, I've written a screenplay based on some of the Irish mythos i grew up with, will hopefully have a final draft finished by the end of the month and was hoping someone would be kind enough to translate two things for me.

The first is "until the final battle" - The context for it would be a farewell, something one warrior would say to another when saying goodbye

The second is "The first warrior" or " The alpha warrior" Its an Honorific, like saying his/her royal highness

any suggestions would be greatly appreciated

go raibh mile maith agat

My suggestion for the first one is - Go cath deireanach, but wait for confirmation from the others. - and for the second - Rófhéinní.

It should be 'Go dtí an cath deireanach' (' go cath deireanach' = 'until alast battle').

The first warrior: 'An príomh-laoch'.

(Franc91, 'ró' is used only with adjectives.)

No, it can be used with nouns, though prob. not very productive, e.g. ródhaonra, overpopulation.
The noun rófhéinní is in FGB (= supreme warrior-chief)

Oops, obviously I know even less than I thought I knowed. My apologies, franc91.

Thanks for the correction - I wasn't quite sure whether the definite article was needed here or whether after - go - it would be assumed to be there, but not used, if you see what I mean.

I agree with having the article:

Go dtí an cath deireanach "Until the last battle"

As titles, both Errigal's An Príomh-Laoch and franc91's An Rófhéinní appear to work.
