And: when to use agus or is?

I am confused about how to say 'and'. Up until now, we have been told 'agus' is the word for and. Now we see 'is' is also used, but with no explanation. Could someone please clarify the usage? Thank you!

There is a search function that works quite well... ;-)

The short version: they're interchangeable as they mean the same.

you should clarify if you mean in scots Gaelic or Irish as agus is a word in both

This is the Gaelic forum.. so no, it's not needed to clarify.
