Hi Everyone......

My father was part Irish and it's approaching the 20th anniversary of his death. I am trying to make a memorial he would be proud of. There's a phrase that I would like to be translated to Irish Gaelic.....

"A good life is better than a long life."

And from my research, the most reliable translation I've come across is from the Geeky Gaeilgeoir,

"Is fearr saol maith ná saol fada"

Can anyone confirm or correct this?
Please and thank you.
