I hope I said that right,lol...could you also say "Bionn míle ceist air!"


Also

I was curios, When I see "Ag an gcat" why is there úrú? Also may I ask in which dialects do they make the n in "an" and the g in "ag" silent before another consanant?

Firstly, all prepositions take a séimhiú:

ar bhata
de dhoras
ó charr
faoi fhear
roimh éan
roimh chapall
thar bhean
trí fhuinneog
do pháiste

The only exceptions are the following ones:

as cat
ag madra
dar tideal
os cionn
chuig Gailimh
go Sasana
le Seán

Also:

go hÉirinn
le hAonghus

Those two stick a h before a vowel


"i" takes an urú:

i mbosca
i nGailimh
i gcathair
i bpáirc

---


The noun is said to be in the dative case when there's a preposition before it.


---

When a preposition comes with "an", they all get urú's:

ar an mbata
ón gcarr
faoin bhfear
roimh an éan
roimh an gcapall
thar an mbean
tríd an bhfhuinneog


as an gcat
ag an madra
dar an dtideal
os an gcionn
chuig an gCabhán
go dtí an bosca (exception!)
leis an mbus


i + an -> ins an -> sa

ins an mbuachaill
sa bhuachaill

do + an -> don

don pheann

de + an -> den
den pháiste

---


And that's just how it works!

Tá míle ceist agam.
Níl mé ag dul má théann

Fear na mBróg seems to have eloquently explained the other.
