Hello. I have a phrase in my head and idea what it is in both Irish and English and it isn't quite right and I wanted to check. It's just a text book phrase. It was from years ago on a T.E.G course. Really getting on my nerves that I can't remember it haha.

I thought it was

Níl suim de liad (or d'liad sounds like da-lie-id) agam sa áiseanna sa cheantar

But I can't find the de liad / d'liad bit anywhere.

I was sure it meant, 'I am not particularly interested in facilities in the area.' But that looks nearer
Níl suim ar leith agam in áiseanna sa cheantar (which is quite close)

Maybe I just got de liad wrong instead of ar leith (doesn't sound very far of) and just got the first 'sa' wrong. But wanted to double check. Thanks.

Dá laghad? Maybe? Níl suim dá laghadh agam?

That's what I thought too.
Ms Patience Virtue, it means 'I haven't the least interest'.

Let me correct my spelling mistake: dá laghad (no h at the end there).
