I had the same thought. When do we learn the word for pitchfork?

Apparently which German is a vegan? What does one German being a vegan have to do with your assertion of Duolingo being anti-vegan?

Oh, are you serious? Sorry, the whole thing was a joke. There was plenty of lessons about "finding the vegan" and "The German is a vegan". Was funny is all.

You NEVER have to look for a vegan. They find YOU!

In which cases would one choose fuair to mean found over D'aimsigh?

Fuair is found in the sense of got or obtained.
D'aimsigh is found in the sense of located.

An alternative to the sentence above would be:
Tháinig mé ar an veigeán.

I wonder could Irish words have been found for vegetarian and vegan.
Suggestion:
iteoir glasraí for vegetarian
fíor-iteoir glasraí for vegan

Feoilséantóir (literally “meat-denier”) is a word for “vegetarian”.

How do you know if someone is a vegan? Don't worry, they'll tell you.

"Tháinig mé ar an veigeán" also handy for use in a more titillating scenario
