"Hello! Hello to you too!"
Translation:Dia duit! Dia is Muire duit!
Muire means Mary, but only the Virgin Mary. The common name Mary is Maire as Gaeilge.
Thank you very much for your explanation! What does Gaeilge mean? And what does "Dia is Muire duit" literally mean? "May Mary be with you today" or soemthing like that?
Gaeilge is what the Irish language is called in Irish. Dia is Muire Duit means something to the tune of god and Mary be with you but is taken to mean "hello to you too."
English does not have to specify singular or plural for this phrase, it could be either. The singular AND plural answers in Irish should be accepted, no?
Difficult to discern whether it's 'you' in the singular or plural? Daoibh/duit?
