Hi,

Back again! Can someone please tell me how the following translates:

She has + misneach
Girl has + misneach

I realise there might not be a literal translation, that's fine.

Thanks again greatly!!!

Misneach is used in this context:
Inner strenght, survival, confidence, this too shall pass, hope, resilience. The feeling you get when you have been in your darkest place, whether mentally or physically and have realised that you are stronger than you thought. That although the ordeal has been tough, you have realised you can handle anything life throws at you. To trust that you will be ok.

She has + misneach = Tá misneach aici.
A girl has + misneach = Tá misneach ag cailín.
The girl has + misneach = Tá misneach ag an gcailín.

Looks like that you have a very resilient person in mind with the ability to bounce back, so I would suggest ''athléimneach" or '' acmhainneach" rather than ''misneach'' or ''misniúil''.

Is bean thar a bheith athléimneach í or is bean thar a bheith acmhainneach í ( she is an extremely resilient woman)
Séamus

it may be a good idea to learn what prepositions the verb takes in Irish
The verb takes a preposition depending on context and meaning
Tá faitíos uirthi roimh an madra mór láidir sin.
Tá dúil aici san deoch milis sin.
Tá olc orm faoin chaoi ar rinne an réiteoir moltóireacht ar an gcluiche sin inné.
It is vital to check Ó Dónaill dictionary and learn /find out about verbs and the Prepositions thay take after them .

Thank you all for the replies and suggestions. Please note I have zero knowledge of the Irish language. In other posts I have found out that misneach works for inner strength. That was initially the sentiment I was going for. Also it might up in my company name, so the shortness works well.

As for the sentence she has.... I just wanted something short and sweet (well aware that the Irish language is anything but short).
I was was thinking along the lines of a snappy short phrase, like for instance The girl's got sass, or She's got spunk. So if it is grammaticly correct, no spelling errors and the message is that the girl has inner strength, I am pleased with Tá misneach aici.

Would there be a difference though in "she has" and "she's got"? I am now doubting my own English (not first language)

Tanks again for all the imput. Hugely appreciated.
