Gaelic teenagers, eh?

Literally translates hate is at me on you?

'the hate at me' is 'my hate'. We're not using the definate article here but the 'agam' is doing the same work as if we were.

a little more smoothly, "my hate is upon you" = "I hate you"

Good explanation!

I wrote gran missing out the i and it didn’t say typo... I find i constantly check to see if I'm spelling correctly, often it lets stuff through. Im a bit dyslexics so can be tricky with the spelling. I do always mark that it shouldn't have gone through..

Or at least it should tell you had a typo. I often just get the translation and not even a mention that i had a typo. Makes it hard to learn from your mistakes

So, kind of like old-fashioned "Ich bin dir gram"

"My hate is on you"?

What a useful sentence for the tourist, LOL! Helps one really get involved with the locals-- break the ice and break a head! This sentence is like something out of the famous Monty Python foreign language phrasebook!
