Do Irish speakers use "is aoibhinn liom" the same way as english speakers as in "I REALLY like" or does this literally mean in love with?

I suspect the former, since the latter would have an alternative phrasing, e.g. Táim an láithreoir nua a ghrá.

EDIT: “I’m delighted with X” would be a less idiomatic translation for Is aoibhinn liom X.
