What would be a negative version of this sentence?:

''Ceapaim gur duine cairdiúil í.''

as in, how would I say she's NOT a friendly person? (besides just using ''míchairdiúil''.)

Thanks

See here for copular forms.

But if it's present tense and not conditional/past, you would say Ceapaim nach duine cairdiúil í

I prefer the Connacht forms there. They're much easier to differentiate.

Connacht forms in brackets

The conjunction go (that) with the copula:

Present tense: gur (go)

Present tense before vowel: gurb (gob)

Past/Conditional tense: gur (go mba)

Past/Conditional tense before vowel: gurbh (go mb')

You can see all the copula forms in the link provided by Galaxyrocker up above.
