Dia daoibh, could you help me with a word 'as Gaeilge'. It occurs in a poem by Bobby Sands, and for the life of me the focloir's no help at all, and it's doing me head in..... the word as it appears in print in 'Lá' is 'tchítear'. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
Go raibh maith agaibh, Fintan.

It's the Ulster equivalent of 'feictear' 'one sees' (although I would get rid of the annoying 'ch' and spell it títear or títhear.)
