The purpose of this forum is to provide a place for people who are interested in the Irish language and various Celtic languages to discuss them, to practice them, and to share information about them, particularly (but not exclusively) in the context of traditional music and culture.

This is not a "translation forum," per se, though translation requests may occasionally be honored at the discretion of the moderators. If you're seeking a one-time translation for something like a tattoo, engraving, wedding vow, or other such purpose, we strongly recommend that you visit our friends at ILF:

In an Irish language workshop at the recent Pittsburgh Irish Festival, we were told the Foras na Gaeilge has been busily coming up with Irish language versions of place names outside of Ireland.

And Pittsburgh is Baile Phitt, a rather literal rendering. I've seen Coill Phenn for Pennsylvania on forums but I don't think that's FnG-official.

So I guess the Pittsburgh Pirates baseball team is FoghlaĆ­ mara Bhaile Phitt?
