So…
Tha mi a' dèanamh sin --> Thathar a' dèanamh sin
Ceart gu leòr. Ach dè mu dheidhinn…
Tha fios aca --> ?
Tha eagal orra --> ?
[msaa]
An canadh tu dìreach "Tha fios ann" ?

edit: Actually this is obviously dealing with an indirect object rather than subject in Gaelic. So I'm reckoning "There was fear / Bha eagal ann" is probably right then?

You can do it with ann but that makes it a bit emphatic, neutral is just
Tha fios gu bheil cus ghunnaichean ann an Ameireaga
Tha eagal nach robh am mòd cho èibhinn am bliadhna
