And how would one say that particular phrase?

Don't have my Irish copy with me but it is something like this

Chonaic Me Bono ag mun sa na Life

And if you people want a better translation then you can, bain as

As means off, and Bain means the same as mun

I watched Million dollar baby yesterday but the dvd was in troubles so I just could see the first half of the movie...

What is the meaning of Mo Cuishle (don't know if I spell it the right way)?

Mo Chuisle means my pulse, but can also mean my darling or my love

I was just about to ask if this really was Gaelic, it looked more like Norwegian to me... Then I saw that someone had responded to it already... I studied English for a year at university, and we read about the developement of the languages and Old English is not that far off from Swedish actually, so... I thought gaelic could be pretty close too... apparently not then. Can I just ask then, how do you say "I love you" in Gaelic?

I'm not actually sure how to saw I love you in Gaelic but Is grá liom Kate , would mean I love Kate, but I'm not sure if Is grá liom tusa would mean I love you

But I should add I'm a teenager who is nearly failing Gaelic, so maybe I ain't the best person to answer that
