I've read somewhere (but can't find the source) that if you need to express a very strong emotion in Irish you can say (literally): "There is all happiness / sorrow of the world on me."
Is there such an idiom and how to say it in Irish correctly?
(I know simple things like tá áthas orm, but this is beyond my current skill.)

Thank you in advance.

Stronger than 'tá áthas orm' is 'tá áthas an domhain orm'.

Thanks a lot! I think that's the one I'm looking for. :)
