GUEST,Paddy(1) Help: Gaelic word for 'Thank you'???? (22) RE: Help: Gaelic word for 'Thank you'???? 14 Nov 00

To explain:

"Go raibh maith agat" literally means "May good(ness) be with you"

It is rather complicated when you think of it!

But we Irish never use one word when we can get away with four.

Go raibh = may (something) be

mait = good (i.e the "something", in this phrase)

agat = with you
