    "Grá" in gaelic means: love, darling, sweetheart. Although I am not sure you should be asking this question in this "English Only" forum.

    Hey Paulfromitaly,

    grá means love. it can be spelled grádh as well.
    For example...

    Táim i ngrá leat - I´m in love with you/I love you
    Is é mo ghrá - He is my love
    Mo ghrá - My love (as in petname)

    It´s used in Irish English as well in the sense that you can say:
    I´ve no gra for the way he´s acting ie, no respect, faith etc
    or I have a little gra for her ie, I fancy her.

    Hope that clears it up for you.
