Máistir na nDúl
Master of the Elements

This name means “island,” and the ‘s’ is pronounced “sh” (as in “finish” without the F)

Tá brón orm, a Fhearghuis.
I’m sorry, Fearghus.

Is tú mo chuisle.
You are my pulse. (This is a common way to say “I love you.”)

Seo dhuit.
Here, take it.


Tá brón orm.
I’m sorry.

Is treascairt na tragóide é an crann greamaithe.
A destiny embraced is a tragedy overcome.

Is trí na dúile a shínim. Is leis na dúile a aimsím. Is tú mo chuisle. Leatsa mé. Sín amach, is ceanglaímis.
It is through the elements that I reach. It is with the elements that I find. You are my pulse. I am yours. Stretch out, and let us connect.
