Why can BOTH spellings of Tiree in Gaelic (Tiriodh and Tioradh) not be deemed correct? There is no consistency.

It's obviously a moot point, judging by other comments!

Some of the questions here only accept Tiriodh as an answer, and mark you wrong for Tioradh. Unfortunately I didn't realise what was going on so didn't click the discuss link for that particular question in time.

I had to pick word tiles and it offered Tioradh and tiriodh. I chose the former and it marked it correct, then offered the second as an alternate answer. Those two words are not the same, and I realize I answered I am in Goodbye.

So how do we know whitch one to use?

Ah, the learngaelic.scot dictionary only had the first.

Got this wrong too, but the other two options have "am", so I guess it needs to be "an"
