Sale is an acceptable translation of sladmhargadh according to foclóir.ie http://www.focloir.ie/en/dictionary/ei/sale

Incidentally, slad by itself can mean loot or pillaged goods. Somewhat appropriate.

This very vivid etymology will definitely help me remember this word! Thanks!

Sounds like an insult: as in "You tell that sorry sladmhargadh to shove it!" Maybe it's just me.

"An sládbharga" this is how good I spell Irish words after only seeing them a few times, lol

If you read the translation as well as listening to the pronunciation you will see that sladmhargadh is "bargain" - this is what I was taught
