The FGB offers Is breá liom mo scíth a ligean for “I like to rest myself” and Ba bhreá liom a bheith ann for “I’d love to be there”, so it could be acceptable, even if it could be ambiguous on the intensity of the feeling.

Is this how you'd say that you love your sons? Or would that use grá?

One could use Tá grá aige dá chuid mac iad féin for “He loves his (own) sons”.

One would use do na buachaillí rather than leis na buachaillí to use that structure.

They could have added 'na buachaillí bána', and it would have been about disgraced poet Cathal Ó Searcaigh...
