Is there an autonomous imperfect in Irish. "Beer once was made here" or "Birds used to be heard in the trees"?

Yes, e.g. Dhéantaí beoir anseo, Chloistí éin sna crainn.

Posting here to report a recurring error in the Grammar Notes section of this lesson––sometimes refers to the "imperfect" as the "conditional." Just a heads-up!
