Isn't 'D'itheadh mo chat gach rud ach itheann sé arán amháin anois' acceptable?

No. To express 'only', you need a negative clause with ach

Can you use gach uile rud to say everything? 'Cause the dictionary contains such translation, but I'm not sure whether it has some connotation I am unaware of. And if there is one, what is the difference (with and without uile)?
