Just so everyone is aware, I translated this as "the thirst is on me" and this was accepted.

Personally I find it easier to translate into english using the gaelic grammer. It's easier to remember the correct gaelic and it still makes sense in english.

I agree, it really helps with the rhythm of the language when you translate it like this.

The m at the end of orm is barely audible in this recording ,so it sounds more like orra or oirre.
