I don’t remember what the typo was — perhaps gaoth wasn’t lenited following an ? — but it’s fixed as of 2016-04-17.

Sorry that I have to ask, but ... What is the typo and could someone please give the correct sentence here in the comment section? Or has it been fixed in the meantime?

In English we always say "North-west" or "South-east" and not "East-south". Does Irish have this standard (but reversed) where "aniar" would come before "aduaidh" or "aneas" always?

If you look here you'll see it's true.

Also Irish directions are fun.
