Ná bain úsaid as google translate i gcomhair aistriúchán Gaeilge/Dont use google to translate irish

Google translate is useless for Irish. http://www.focal.ie/ & http://www.focloir.ie/ provide much better translations.Focloir.ie also provides a pronunciation in three accents/dialects ( Connacht ,Ulster) only use google as a last resort.

Pro tip: don't use Google Translate if you're planning on getting a tattoo in Irish. Or any other language.

You'd be surprised how many people don't know this vital piece of information.

I've been reporting this error for four years now and they still haven't fixed it!

I doubt there's anyone tending to the system.

Jesus, the grammar isn't even half correct. I only use google translate for single words, if ever.

The only reason I ever use Google Translate is for pronunciation, and they don't even have it for Irish.
