Why not just ar aisteoir I? What would be the difference?

Ar becomes arbh before a vowel. That's pretty much it.

Very confusing since they just had "ar aisteoir í" !!!

We had "asteoir" with "Niorbh" before.

What is the difference between "Arbh aisteoir í?" and "Níorbh aisteoir í?"

Níorbh aisteoir í isn't a question, and doesn't have a question mark.

, níor and níorbh are all negative forms of the copula - níorbh aisteoir í - "she wasn't an actor".
