Still not matching. The audio says "Úsáidtear rothar in Amstardam" but the answer is "An bhfuil an daonra agat?" I reported it.

Um, here it is almost 2018, and still no attention has been paid to the annoying problem that has been reported here repeatedly over the last two years or so (and which caught me again today). Not meaning to be critical, but I would say that there really needs to be an "out of channels" mechanism available to users to call attention to special situations like this..

"Cad é daonra na hEireann" was translated as "what is the population of Ireland" and "an bhfuil an daonra agat" was translated as "do you have the population"? One has "daonra" and the other "an daonra". Are both correct?

Thanks.

For the first one, you're using the genitive. It's literally something like "Ireland's population." When you have the genitive structure like that, the definite article comes in the middle. So the definite article is there, in the na between the two words.

As I understand it "X na Y" is roughly the same as "the X of the Y".

I would say that both are possible depending on the context. Compare "the population of Ireland" (the X of Y) to "the population of the country" (the X of the Y). In principle you could even have several "of the" links eg "the opinion of the majority of the population of the country" but, as I understand it, you would only ever have one article in the Irish.
