Bliadhna means “year”, ur with an accent is “new”, so literally the greeting is “year good new”.

Best wishes for Christmas and for 2021,

I'm curious about the Gaelic word Bliadhna.  I assume it means Happy.  In Dutch, the word "blij" (pronounced Bly, means happy.  
I've seen other words that are similar too.  I might have to dig into this in the future, but in the meantime
"Happy New Year" in any language everyone!
