In which region it is phrased " X i ndiadh a Y" to tell the time?

I learnt " X tar éis a Y" in school.

Is it always "X past Y"? Because in American, we can also say one oh five... And what about the 24 hour clock?

I was taught to "cuig nóiméad tar éis a haon" when i was in school.

Time was usually expressed as X minutes past Y or X minutes to Y.

Although that was a long time ago now, maybe i did learn it this but just preffered to on method over the other.
