In the tips for the first lesson, they say that some folks use toigh and some toil, and they chose to teach toil because it's more common.

The tips don't show up in the app -- they're only visible from the web interface -- but you can bring up the web interface in your phone's browser: https://duolingo.com

Is "idir" pronunced eech-erd or eech-ith? I couldn't tell by the voice.
