is é mo phatrún é Pól :)
No need for the second é.
Is it incorrect or is it correct either way? I've read in another discussion that, not sure which dialect (maybe Ulster Irish) leaves out the second pronoun in the copula.
Is maith liom Enya.
Curiosity question: How would you say "(name) is my role model"?
Is í Enya mo phatrún.
My role model is a little green owl.
I thought it was "Are you a role model?". What would that be?
An patrún thú?
eikoopmit, that's what i thought at first too, but the "at you" reminded me of the form of possession, so i guessed the correct answer based on that "at you" for having something.
Is pátrún related to patron?
See the discussion in the reverse translation.
Is there a dfferent word for mentor?
Foclóír.ie has "meantóir" (https://www.focloir.ie/en/dictionary/ei/mentor)...
I think the word “mentor” should be an acceptable translation for “patrún”.
"role model" and "mentor" are not synonyms in English. A mentor provides advice, a "role model" doesn't even have to know that they are a role model.
oide múinte, Comhairleoir and meantóir are some of the options for "mentor".
Are role models a big thing in Ireland?
