Daichead would be Munster Irish for forty, other dialects might give answers of ceathracha or dhá scór

dhá scór is originally what I typed; sadly, it wasn't accepted.

Thank you! I recent started re-learning Irish many years after leaving school, and for the life of me I swore I had never heard of 'daichead', but that's what everything was saying 40 is. 'Ceathracha' was in my head, but not the spelling, think I was trying to search for something like 'caoracha' (40 sheep?).

GRMA.

Is fiche agus fiche, is daichead é sin actually wrong, or just overly wordy?

Would it be possible for duolingo to allow you to try other answers, once you get the answer right first, without losing hearts? I tried "scór agus scór" for the craic
