Can someone help me understand why I didnt need the article an in this sentence?
The article is there. i is the normal preposition meaning "in", however i an becomes sa(n)
Why ‘sa’ and not ‘san’? This keeps confusing me.
san comes before a vowel sound. san uisce or (in the standard) san fharraige
why is it (CH)aife and not (g)caife?
It would be sa gcaife in Connacht, but in the other dialects and in An Caighdeán Oifigiúil, sa causes lenition.
