  5. "D'fhill sí le carr agus buac…


"D'fhill sí le carr agus buachaill nua."

Tried to post this on the question, but it froze on me.

The "agus buachaill nua" gets translated as "and a new boyfriend", but could this phrase be understood as "with a new boy", as in a baby boy? Would a native speaker always understand this as "she came back with a lover", or could it mean she came back with the result of one instead?

Buachaill wouldn’t be used to refer to a baby. It could refer to an older child, which in the context of this sentence might refer to one who was recently adopted.


Where is the English translation? I don't see any English translation?
