I've read an article about indirect relative clauses in such situations recently, so I wonder if someone could say instead:
Nuair is mé a bhfuil filleadh abhaile uaim.

That seems perfectly possible to me (albeit maybe not exactly something I would ever say)

What about

Nuair is abhaile a bhfuil filleadh uaim ?????

do you think fháil was supposed to be ghabháil ? or is it supposed to be one of the pronunciations of dul ?

of course, this is assuming that it was based on something correct instead of just random error

On a related note, does anyone know where I can find a pic of the entire tattoo? It's a wrap-around, and the pictures I've seen only show part of it. I'm interested primarily because the information out there differs on whether the tattoo has "fháil" or "fhaigh." Both wrong, but I don't want to write a post using one and then have someone come along and say "well, actually it says this...get it right before you criticize!"

Thank you so much for finding those! I looked all over (and even had someone show me stuff about his tattoo a couple of weeks ago), and all of them had "fháil" or "fhaigh" (my assumption was, since the English has the phrase "get home," he'd grabbed "faigh" for that meaning).

Interesting that so much stuff on the internet has his tattoo completely wrong.

Interesting he lost all the lenition markers. Copied from an actual text in seanchló and dropped all the dots? Did it on purpose?

Hard to say. I've found little on the internet about this tattoo other than what he meant it to be a translation of.

I still think it's interesting that so many people claim it says either "fhaigh bhaile" or "fháil bhaile." I think we even got those at the old forum.

He has much too many tattoos for my liking.

There's at least another one in Irish:

Chuir tú cr... ?

Yes, probably,
"Chuir tú crá croí orm", I'd guess.
