Is it really necessary to say 'I' twice in this sentence when translating to English?

In English, no, but a more literal translation might be easier for people who have little translation experience.

In fairness I tend to agree... it has certainly helped mt with understanding Irish first to imagine the words/sentences literally translated into English, before typing it out in a way that looks correct grammatically.
