Can someone explain the differences of tá matched with aici? When does it indicate a man or a woman possessing something?

Tá rís aige = "He has rice." Tá rís aici = "She has rice." Tá rís acu = "They have rice", etc.

In Irish, to have something means it is 'at' you. Here, it literally translates as 'Rice os at her'. In Irish, prepositions inflect.
