If you look at focal.ie under the heading - philosophy/fealsunacht (with a fada on the 'u') they give - ainrialachas (fir1) - gu - airialachais

Are you referring to my post re the Irish word for anarchism?

I don't fully understand your post.

I was thinking you might not have understood the grammatical terms given above - fir 1, for example means that the noun is masculine and that it's in the first declension, gu refers to its form in the genitive. I don't know whether these are already posted up on the foram, but here they are. I hope you'll find them useful - grammatical terms when you can't understand them can easily put you off, I know that.

This does not add up (pardon the pun).

Something like this seems more accurate but is also not perfect for 101,941:

céad 's a haon míle, naoi céad, daichead 's a haon or céad a haon míle, naoi céad, daichead a haon

My best guess for those would be

Deich mile, seacht cead, caoga haon.
Cead 's a haon mile, naoi cead, daichead 's a haon.
Miliún 's seacht mile, naoi cead 's sé deag.
Biliún, trí miliún, cead 's trocha cuig mile 's ochto.
Deich míle, seacht gcéad, agus a caoga haon.
Céad 's a haon míle, naoi gcéad, daichead 's a haon.
Milliún, seacht míle, naoi gcéad 's a sé déag.
Billiún, trí mhilliún, céad's triocha cúig míle agus ochtó.

My best effort; am open to corrections, though.
(Sorry for being pedantic!!!)

Really, there are all sorts of tools and dictionaries on the internet for finding out this sort of information.
Why don't you use some of them?

focal.ie
acmhainn.ie
google translate

just to give three.

Or buy yourself a dictionary.

Rua applies to hair, ie, 'Donncha Rua' would mean 'Red Haired Donncha'.

'Madra Rua' is a Fox.

Gotcha. I was wondering as Hair = Gruaig so rua doesn't seem to make sense. Thanks for clarifying that.
