Again - - - please can someone explain why this year is am bliadhna, not a' bhliadhna seo. I'm lost here!

'Iain is 23 this year' should surely be acceptable, bearing in mind that numerals are already allowed elsewhere.

I was marked wrong for writing 'twenty-three' with a hyphen, but that is correct. See https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/twenty-three

again, I used 23 instead of twenty three. Number used all the time but a few. Very annoying

I fixed this last night but it takes a while to feed through to the user side.
