Hello, I hope somebody can help me.
I want to name a guitar that I've built and I am considering these words 'yellow ash tree' meaning made of yellow ash tree and also 'the yellow one'.
Or just get the spelling of the brand Fender into Irish.

Thanks.

Dia diobh a chairde,

Bron orm ach nil mo chuid gaeilge go maith.
Táim ag lórg an phrása as gaeilge 'it's a great day to be alive'.

Bhí mé ag cuardach ar an idirlíon ach níl sé ann. Chuala mé micheál ó muircheartaigh rá é roimh.

Níl mé ag lorg an t-aistriúchán litriúil.

Míle buíochas!

"Is maith an lá é a bheith beo" would be a direct translation.

That's fine, though síob is typically used in the context of a lift, so it mightn't always be suitable.

Very true, thought it was implied by the context

Needs context really

For "I like their car" I would say

"Is maith liom a gluaistéain"

And for "It is their computer" I would say

"is leo an ríomhaire"

But wait for the true grammar types to give you the specifics!

I've never seen that word before. Where did you find it? Old Irish or Scots Gaelic by any chance?

a (his) => consonant + séimhiú/ no change with vowels
M.Sh: A charr = his car. A aird = his attention.
a (her) => no change on consonant/ "h" before vowels
M.Sh: A carr = her car. A haird = her attention.
a (their) => urú before the consonant/ 'n' before vowels
M.Sh: A gcarr = their car. A naird = their attention.
