Hi,
Is there anyone who can tr*nsl*t* "You'll Never Walk Alone" into Scottish Gaelic for me? I would like it as a t*tt**. Thanks so much!
Catriona

I am surprised that there are no accents on any of the vowels.
Thanks for your quick reply!

That's not entirely right, (a-)riamh refers to the past tense only. Replace with gu bràth.

Quite right. That was careless of me - apologies.

Isn't that the "impersonal you" in English though? Surely an impersonal form would be better.

Is the concept of "walk" used in the English version of that phrase adequately captured by the use of "coisich" in Gaelic? I have my doubts.
