Perhaps I’ve found a glitch? I wrote “an uinnean mòr” and it was marked correct

I am confused as to why both the "An" and the "t-" are needed. Best I can figure it, both are ways of specifying a particular onion (saying "the" uinnean).

So why would either or neither of:
"An uinnean mòr" or
"T-uinnean mòr"
Not also be usable for the phrase "the big onion"?

... And by the way - isn't that what they call New Orleans?
