Unfortunately, I am totally unfamiliar with Old Irish. I need to know a basic thing about nouns. Namely, how do you form a word meaning 'her' or 'their', for example, 'stone' from the word 'his stone'. Could anyone possibly help me with the answer what is the rule? I'd be very grateful. Cheers!

I don't know much about Old Irish, but "his stone" is "a chloch" in Modern Irish.

singular lenites all except for "a" meaning "her"
mo chloch (my stone)
do chloch (your stone)
a chloch (his stone)
a cloch (her stone)
plurals eclipse all:
ár gcloch (our stone)
bhur gcloch (your [pl] stone)
a gcloch (their stone)
Hope that helps a bit.
