Please allow me to address a question to a native Irish speaker.

If I welcome someone to my Website in Irish, would I say "Fáilte chuig Thomas Wolff" or "Fáilte go Thomas Wolff"?
(http://www.thomaswolff.at/index_enu.html)

Many thanks in advance... :-)

Well Bríd Mhór is the only native speaker who is on this website, and hasn't posted for months (??). Generally, speaking few native speakers take an active part in online resources on the Irish language. Bríd is an important exception.

Fáilte go Conamara - "go" used with a proper noun
Fáilte go dtí mo neadsa - "go dtí" used with definite nouns/nouns with possessive, etc
Fáite chun mo neadsa - this is used the same as the one above. Chuig is a dialectal version of chun.

Fáilte go dtí mo shuíomh
Fáilte chun/chuig mo shuíomh

These are both correct "for welcome to my site".

I think Fáilte go Thomas Wolff (Tomás Machtíre) would be fine.

Well, maybe see what other forum participants incl Labhrás/An Lon Dubh might say re: go vs. chun?

Yes, you are right. Perhaps I better wait a few more days.
So far, however, no one else has answered. :-)
Thanks once again and all the best.
