Subject: Help with Irish Gaelic Translation

A Youtube viewer made this comment on one of my Youtube videos:

"Reitím, iontach ar fad!"

Now I have my Youtube account set up so that "friend" comments are posted immediately, but if I don't know you, I have to approve your comment. This allows me to keep spammers and nasty folks from posting anything they like.

What is this poster saying?

Here is the video in question. You'll see it attracted a few negative comments, and I don't mind that - I just don't want ugly stuff up there, even in an obscure language!

It looks tame enough - I just can't tell.

I think it was complimenting your music.

Hi JedMarum

It is a positive comment, it would translate as 'very excellent'

From the Irish to the English it translate to
''I Get On, All Great''
It's a positive comment but the person isn't a great Irish speaker

"iontach ar fad!" is equivalent to "Excellent!" or, perhaps better, "Wonderful!" i.e. enthusiastic approval.

"Réitím" (note the accents - for those who see them correctly given my lazy insertion!) means "I agree", or thereabouts. The usage is a bit colloquial - I reckon the sense is close to "Agreed" - " or "Settled -"
