the negative of rinne me is ní dhearna mé.

Makes perfect sense......

My understanding is that rinne came from ro-ghní and ní dhearna came from ní do ro-ghní. (In Dinneen’s dictionary, the headword for déan was still do-ghním.)

Coincidentally, I just did an exercise with "activity" - gníomhaíocht, which I presume is the same root.
