In my copy of the Collins Easy Learning Irish Dictionary there's this -
I did it just now - anois féin a rinne mé é
he's just arrived - tà sé direach tagtha (with a fada on the 'i')
I'm just coming! - Beidh mé leat anois!
and I think you could also use ach with a negative and a vn
or to say just so much is enough - is leor

Need confirmation...

Does Ni neart go cur le chéile mean There's no strength without unity?

What would be the best way to say "Don't be rude" (and then later, while giving out about them, "He was very rude"...)?

Ná bí drochbhéasach

Bhí sé an-drochbhéasach

I see there's also - gan mhuineadh (with a fada on the 'u') which means bad-mannered (literally - without manners) in Pota Focal.

I don't think so - Ruairi/Rory is typically Gaelic (I'm guessing that it's something to do with red) whereas Roger is French - and probably Norman French.
Originally Roger comes from Hrodgari (Germanic) Hrod meaning glory or honour and gari which means a spear.

The surname Rogers/Rodgers would be Mac Ruairí/Ruaidhrí
McCrory would be also
