From Old Irish -ach, from Proto-Celtic *-ākos, from Proto-Indo-European *-eh₂kos, *-eh₂ḱos, from a-stem suffix *-eh₂- + adjectival suffix *-kos, *-ḱos; compare Welsh -og. Doublet of -ag.

Broom icon.svg A user suggests that this Manx entry be cleaned up, giving the reason: "The gender doesn't apply to adjectives.
(Even if -agh were the masculine form and the feminine were something else, the gender is misleading. For comparision: -us gives the gender, but also the forms for other genders; -ский gives no gender in the head, but everthing in the declension section.)"
Please see the discussion on Requests for cleanup(+) for more information and remove this template after the problem has been dealt with.
