Googling the whole phrase has this in the first hit

Quote:
... if the loved one was a man or boy:
Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam dílis

although the dílis could be omitted.

Note that the d in Dé is upper case ("God with a capital G") and the next word is go NOT do.

If the loved one was woman or girl:

Ar dheis Dé go raibh a hanam dílis

It is in some ways equivalent to "May he/she rest in peace"
