I am looking to confirm the translation for "Follow Your Heart" in Irish Gaelic is "lean tu croi". This is for a ring engraving and I want to be sure it is correct. Thank you!

From a previous post ( viewtopic.php?f=28&t=323&hilit=Follow+Your+Heart )

Lean do chroí

was offered.

Wait for more input.

Idiomatic phrases don't necessarily translate well between languages. Nonetheless I found the following ways of saying 'Follow your heart' at http://www.focloir.ie .

Lean mian do chroí (literally: Follow your heart's desire)

Téigh de réir do chroí (literally: Go according to your heart)

Déan an rud atá ar do chroí (literally: Do the thing that is on your heart)

As a variation on the last one above, maybe you could also say the following. (On second thoughts, I'm not sure if it's grammatically correct.)

Déan cad atá ar do chroí (literally: Do what that is on your heart)

From Caoilte's suggestions above, this would be my choice: Lean mian do chroí.

It is simple and to the point.
