There's a very loud crack on sound of "còig"

Did I miss something along the way? Why not agad?

The sentence was addressing friends (a chàirdean), therefore "you" (plural) is required in the address. "agad" of course is singular, so "friend" would have been appropriate with it..... "Tha còig deug agad, a charaid."
