Usage notes[edit]

When used to modify a noun, trí precedes the noun (and triggers lenition of a noun in the singular or h-prothesis of one in the plural), while déag follows the noun.

The form aon deich a trí was prescribed by Peadar Ua Laoghaire in the 1920s, but it is unclear whether it has ever been used by native speakers.
