I presume this is to get someone's attention. Not 'excuse me' to get someone to repeat something.

I think it's more an apology, i.e excuse me, I didn't see you there.

That's my take, given as an incredibly literal translation would be "have my apology"

When you say it like that, maybe Gabh seems similar to Give. Maybe?

'Take my apology' I think
