Does this refer to any possession?
If it asks about somebody´s age, it sounds awkward in the English translation.

Yeah, it's referring possession and not age.

You coukd easily rework this to be about age by taking out the "agad".

You'd have to add "thu/sibh" though.

Is yet an acceptable translation for fhathast in this sentence?
