 First of all, you cannot say, as you may in English, that someone is
welcome, or that comments will be welcomed etc. In other words, you may not
say e.g. tha thu fa\ilte. THIS IS QUITE WRONG

To say that [something/ someone] will be welcome, you may say either:
Bidh fa\ilte air [rudeigin/cuideigin] Lit. There will be a welcome upon
[something/ someone].
or
Bidh fa\ilte roimh [rudeigin/cuideigin] ] Lit. There will be a welcome
before [something/ someone].
e.g.
Bidh filte bhla\th ron aithris seo
There will be a warm welcome for this report/awaiting this report

Bidh filte chri\dheil romhainn an sin
A hearty welcome awaits us there./There will be a hearty welcome for us
there.

More next time!

Mar sin leibh,
Cailean
Am Marcair Dubh
Is i a' Gha\idhlig Ca\nan mo Dhu\thcha.
