Nach, Ní, Níl

    I'm having a hard time remembering which form to use in a sentence.

    Does anyone have any helpful hints they've memorized to help them remember the difference?

    Ta a fhios agam - I know....------ nil a fhios agam - I do not know

    Is iontach e! - It is wonderful! ----- nach iontach e?! - isn't it wonderful?!

      Nach bhfuil tú go maith? aren't you well?

      An féidir leat? can you?

      Nach féidir leat? can't you?

      An raibh an capall ann? was the horse there?
