Sorry to hijack your thread but I was just curious if i wanted to say "I would like to go back" would it either be "ba mhaith liom dul air ais" or "ba mhaith liom a dul ar ais"? Thanks


Caoimhín already answered the question, but in case you are wondering why, the answer is whether the verb is transitive or intransitive (aka whether it has an object or not)
so:
ba mhaith liom thú a mharú
ba mhaith liom bás a fháil
(both are transitive)
ba mhaith liom fanacht ar an saol
ba mhaith liom labhairt le saoi leighis
(both are intransitive)

"to be" is always séimhithe so here, even though it is neither transitive nor intransitive, it will be lenited always
ba mhaith liom (a) bheith sásta
ba mhaith liom (a) bheith pósta faoi cheann bliana


GMRA! bhí sé sin an-úsáideach
