According to the eclipsis rules, it should be 'bhfear' (because of 'leis an'). Why is 'fhear' also correct?

For this particular rule, Ulster Irish lenites rather than eclipses.

Of course they do. Because lenition and eclipses aren't hard enough for me to understand lol

If you log into the DuoLingo website, there is a list of Tips Notes available for each "skill" - the basic rules for Eclipsis are explained there.

If you're using an app on a mobile phone or tablet, you may not be able to see these Tips & Notes in the App, you'll have to go to the website.

This is the second time today I have seen "fhear". I'm on LEVEL 20 and have never seen it before. I wish they would stick with the "standard". Learning one is hard enough.
