Explanation:
I don't remember hardly any of the Irish I studied for 14 (!) years, but I was able to make some deductions.

Go is 'May...' and thereafter it's a curse or a blessing. From waht I've been able to find out, it's not pleasant, very strong, even venomous.

The word 'salaí is a verb, and I remembered that 'salach' means dirty.
Thus 'May you pollute/be polluted..

From online dictionaries, I got indications that the other words means things like deceitful/hypocritical disgust/abhorrence.

I got no clues for the last word. ('do chuid' means 'of your'

If I find anything else, I'll be back.

Explanation:
This isn't a traditional malediction. I doubt if it is meant seriously.
