You can also use the copula here, and that's what FGB (the authoritative Irish-English dictionary) suggests. However, focloir.ie, the new English-Irish dictionary suggests either can be used.

Would 'An ceart é?' work for this?

I seem to remember "An ea?" translating to "Is it?" in a previous lesson. Is there any way to add an adjective to that?

The other way to express this would be "An fíor é"?
