"Veigeatóir"? Feoilséantóir is the more common word, surely.

We accept both. We just made a judgement call to teach "veigeatóir"

Ní veigeatóir mé - I am not a vegetarian.

I thought 'táim' or 'tá mé' would have been accepted as well?

This is a classification/identification sentence. Irish, similar to Spanish, requires a different verb to express those, namely the copula.
