Hi there, my name is Kya.
I am getting a tattoo very soon, and I would love for it to be in Gaelic Irish. The only problem I have is that I know very little (if anything at all) about the language. If anyone would be able to translate;

"and from the chaos of her soul there flowered beauty"

I would be so, so happy! I am not aware of the different dialects(?) or anything, so any translation will be so helpful. Thanks a ton!

You cannot put as anord... next to the verb. It is the subject position.

Agus as anord a hanamasa is ann a bhláthaigh áilleacht.

This keeps the original word order:
and from the chaos of her soul = agus as anord a hanamasa
(it is) there = is ann
(that) flowered beauty = a bhláthaigh áilleacht.

(it is) there = is ann
(that) flowered beauty = a bhláithigh áilleacht.


Ah I see, thank you for the correction:-)

This is good. :good:

I do wonder, however, if "there" might be the fact that it happened rather than a literal place. In that case, perhaps:

agus is as anord a hanama a bhláthaigh áilleacht.
"and from the chaos of her soul there flowered beauty"
Literally "and it is from the chaos of her soul that beauty flowered"

Await further discussion ...

Yes, I think that's the right way to handle the "there". :good:

"is ann" covers both. It can mean literally "there" but here it is just a kind of extra emphasis like "as anord a hanama is ea a ...".
