: I really need to know the meaning (in English) and the origin of this phrase. I was told it is Gaelic. If anyone could help with this I would be very grateful. Thank you

By typing the phrase into the box at the Google site (http://www.google.com), I got several links. The site linked below (http://www.geniusatwork.co.uk/tiocfaid.htm) says it means "Our day will come" and is an Irish Republican slogan. I didn't pursue the origin. You can probably find that too, using Google.
