No. You can either use "number + singular noun" or "number + o + plural noun".
The o + plural is more common with larger numbers, always with a thousand and over, and also if you want to emphaise that you are talking about a number of individually considered items. Many people will use it when saying how many children they have, for example, or how many various coins/cars/parsnips/stamps they have in their collection.
- Dw i eisiau tri afal. - I want three apples.
- Mae tri phlentyn gyda ni; Mae tri o blant gyda ni. - We have three children.
- Mae'r car 'ma yn costio pum can punt; Mae'r car 'ma yn costio pum cant o bunnau; Mae'r car 'ma yn costio hanner mil o bunnau. - This car costs five hundred pounds.
- Mae'r car 'na yn costio pum mil o bunnau. - That car costs five thousand pounds.
