How would you describe colors as "dark" (e.g. "dark blue ", or "dark red"? Go raibh maith agat!

From the NEID:

"dark blue" - dúghorm, gorm dorcha
"dark brown" - dúdhonn, donn dorcha
"dark green" - dúghlas, glas dorcha

Yes for most you add 'dú' So dúghorm is navy, or dark blue

Would dorcha be used to describe a grim or morbid outlook? For instance, how would one say, "I have a dark sense of humor"?

Either dorcha or dubh could be used for that sense of “dark”.

I wrote "chata" and was wondering what it was about. I did not find this weird pronunciation there: https://www.teanglann.ie/en/fuaim/hata
