So the lenition is on feminine nouns? Or is the lenition following any direct object or article? I need to read the difficult newspapers. :)
The lenition of an adjective follows a feminine noun, and the DNTLS DTS rule does not apply for attributive adjectives.
Note, that's only the singular. With the plural, lenition depends on if the word ends in a slender consonant, and doesn't depend on the gender of the word.

- an fear deas - the nice man
- an nuachtán deas - the nice newspaper
