Rud amhain a thug muid fa deara direach on tus, na an caighdean - bhi se i bhfad nib fhearr na mar a bhi anuraidh.

One thing we noticed straight from the start, was the standard-it was ..??.. better than it was last year.

Ag tus, Mhi Bealtaine, cuireadh me fein, Mici agus Micheal amach ar fud na tire leis an ait ar fad a chuartu do pheileadoiri neamhchontae...

Beginning,May, myself,Mici and Micheal ..??..out around the country..??.visit footballers..??

Ar ndoigh, ta me ag caint fan chlar teilifis a bhi ar siul le deanai darbh ainm Underdogs.

Indeed, i am talking .. ??.. television program underway lately called Underdogs.

Le meas
Antoin

Ní bfhearr / níos fearr: I would understand both. The first may not be strictly according to the Cáighdéan Oifigiúl.

Ag tús - at the start
"leis an áit ar fad" in order to search the whole place

It is much better.
sé i bhfad níos fearr.

It was much better.
Bhí sé i bhfad ní b'fhearr.


The underlined parts indicate the tense -- and you can't mix the tenses. For instance, the following is garbage:

Táim ní b'fhearr.
Bhí sé níos fearr.

ní b'fhearr = [ní] + [ba] + [fearr]
níos fearr = [ní] + [is] + [fearr]

Note here that "ba" is the past tense of "is"!

Muise, sin é go díreach. Maith a fear, a FnaB.

Bím dall ar rudaí mar sin. Is féidir braith ortsa rudaí a bhaineann le gramadach a chuir ina gceart. (de ghnáth )
