why is it not rhathad? Still trying to get the hang of lenition fully :) Thought it applied to all consonant-starting words.

Words beginning with LNR do not get an 'h' :)

Not "seo da bhothar? Is "bothar" no longer current

I’ve only ever seen bothar used in Irish.

It's not a word I've ever come across, but having looked it up it means alley or lane. So I'm not sure we'd accept it :)
