English term or phrase: the loved and the hated
this phrase is taken from a quotation in Umberto Eco's Faucault's Pendulum, which reads: "I am the first and the last, the loved and the hated, the saint and the prostitute."

an té a raibh meas agus gráin air

I am assuming the person referred to is male.The term for love is grá
but the context here is a person liked/respected by the people and at the other times hated by the people.Grá is a term used for love between and within a family but for the general public meas is usede.The word meas is often used within spoken english in Ireland today.
