Hi everyone,
I'm wondering what the best way to say "he was looking after his sheep/pigs" would be in Irish. Would it be ok to say "Bhí sé ag faire a chuid caoirigh" for example? I'd like to know if that is grammatically correct for starters (tuiseal ginideach and so on) and also to know if there is a better, more fluent or more suitable expression than "ag faire" in this case.
:GRMA:
:)

Here's one suggestion - Bhí sé i ndiaidh caorach - but wait for confirmation and ideas from the others.

Bhí sé i ndiaidh a chuid caorach. (or simply: ... i ndiaidh na gcaorach)
or
Bhí sé i bhfeighil a chuid caorach.

Thug sé aire dá chuid caorach.
