Default Aistriúchán beag

An bhfuil fíos ag aon duine conas a duirt tú e sin? -> "Yes we can .... if you have a ticket?"

"Is féidir linn .... má ticéad ort!" ... doesn't look right

I'm not the best person to answer this but one of the problems with direct translation with the Obama phrase is that there isn't really a word in Irish for "yes". Sea is just 'Is ea' as far as I'm aware. "Sea, is feidir linn" doesn't sound right to me. As a result "is feidir linn" really just means "we can" but in Irish you answer questions with the verb and not a word so its fine to just use that.

I'd say "Is feidir linn...má tá ticéad agat".

Could possibly use "Is féidir linn ....fad is ticéad agat "

Yes we can , as long as you've a ticket .

If that looks nicer to ya .

Could contract the fad is , to Fad's ( makes it three words and three words )
