"Aon chéad" - "One hundred" ???
This doesn't look right to me at all. It would mean "any hundred" or "any century".

The only example I could find for a “round” number beginning with aon in the Caighdeán Oifigiúil was aon billiún amháin (on page 153), and even that was given as an alternative for plain billiún. As expected, “100” was listed as céad on the same page.

I agree, one hundred is "céad"
