Better to be both ;)
What's the point of being rich if your dead
i thought better would be níos fearr ?
This is stressing the "better"
Is fearr a bheith beo agus saibhir ;)
Should "preferable" also be accepted?
Where is the subject in this sentence? Does "Is fearr" cover it somehow?
Could this not translate as 'Best to be alive than rich'?
Ehhhhhh sort of. I'm not too familiar with that sentence construction in my dialect of U.S. English, though. We say "Better to x than y." But if yours is different, I'll say "perhaps" but still erring on the side of no.
