"do" is Not incorrect!

Yes, it is I’m afraid. Do contracts before a vowel.

Like in French, some contractions are compulsory before a vowel. But note the important difference, that people often get wrong in Gaelic and in French:

D' aodann (Gaelic) 'your face' space
L'oeuf (French) 'the egg' no space
