Why does this not need a "de" in front of it?

It's already there. The at the beginning of it is where it was separate in the past.

Here's the etymology:

> From dé (“day”) + idir (“between”) + dhá (“two”) + aoine (“fast”) (literally, "day between two fastings").

So why “Déardaoin” isn't spelled “dé Ardaoin” instead? Irish is so complicated and more detailed explanation is needed in the tips and notes.

Wow! My mind is blown. I love how Irish is so descriptive. The more I learn now, thd more I realise how badly it is taught in school!
