Hi all,

I am trying to find the proper place to request a translation for a tattoo but I couldn't find it so I'm hoping this is okay.

I'm looking to have the following translated to standard Irish (CO): "My angels are always with me".

My grandmother's family are from Ireland and I'm getting this tattoo to remember her. I used some translator websites and got 2 different translations so I'm hoping to get some guidance on which translation is correct.

Translations: "Tá mo aingeal i gnónaí liom" and "Tá mo chuid aingeal i gcónaí liomsa"

Any guidance with this is greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance for your time and help!

Bíonn mo chuid aingeal i gcónaí liom.

"Always" (i gcónaí) requires a different tense: "bíonn" (habitual present) instead of "tá" (simple present).

mo is shortened before a vowel, so "mo aingeal" is wrong
m'aingeal = my angel
m'aingil = my angels
but usually, cuid (share) is used with plural nouns, so:
mo chuid aingeal = my (share of) angels (aingeal is genitive plural here)
