When does this verb take le / leis and when not? Would this also be correct:
"Cabhraímid leis na (m)buachaillí.
According to FGB, it looks like it should always have le if you're using it as a verb, good catch. Also, you only eclipse after preposition and singular article.
Thank you. What is FGB?

You are extremely helpful and definitely deserve a lingot!
I don't really need the lingots, but thank you! I just really want to see people learn Irish, and love talking about the language. If you ever have questions, feel free to ask me directly!
And here I was, being relieved and amazed that the verb for 'helping' was so simple.
