There was another way of saying this in one of the choice exercises: "Tá mé rompu", I think it was (can't remember for sure, due to memory like a sieve). Are these both correct? different dialects maybe?
Was it tá mé os a gcomhair or Tá mé ar a n-aighaidh (though the latter is more like "facing them")
No, it wasn't that complicated. I thought it was simply "tá mé rompu". I guess I should have questioned it at the time, and will if it shows up again somewhere.
Why not I am ahead of them
Does this mean that you are physically standing before someone or that you are next/your turn?
As well as I am before them on the finish of the race.
