Am I correct on the following

"Kiss me, I'm Irish" == Tabhair mé póg, is Éireannach mé
"That isn't true" == Níl sé sin fior

Any corrections or suggestions on better ways to say it would be appreciated.

Wouldn’t tabhair mé… be give me… as in I am the object given; give me to somebody else? I’d say tabhair póg dom (cf. an Ulster song A Shéamuis Mhic Mhurchaidh and pill arís agus tabhair póg domh therein).

:good:

There's no dative without prepositions in Irish.
Give me a kiss = Tabhair d(h)om póg / Tabhair póg dom
