"Everything is about us."
Translation:Tá gach rud fúinn.
Ah, how frustrating! This hadn't been introduced before, so obviously I didn't recognise it. Was I just unlucky in the way the questions were randomised, or is it an oversight that they introduced it for multiple choice before we'd had a chance to test the new construction? Anyone else have this problem?
So... what does 'uile' mean?
I got the same problem, so I think it's an oversight. Wiktionary says "uile" means "all" as in the whole thing. "gach" is "every" in the sense of each thing. "gach uile" is just given as "every", with "chuile" as a contraction. There seem to be a ton of derived terms with similar meanings too.
Ó Dónaill gives the following meanings for faoi in the sense of "around", "within reach":
- Rud a chur faoi do mhuineál, to put sth. round your neck.
- Bhí crios faoina choim, there was a belt round his waist.
(b) Within compass of.
- Thart faoi seo, round about here.
- Amuigh faoin tuath, out in the country.
- Teacht faoi thír, to come ashore.
- Má tá siad faoi bhaile, if they are at home.
- Níl sé faoi bhallaí an tí, it is not within the walls of the house, it is nowhere in the house.
- Cailleadh faoi shlí iad, they were lost somewhere along the way.
Because tá fúinn means "we intend to".

"everything" is the subject of the sentence (everything is ....) so gach rud comes immediately after the verb.
