So "Tá tuirseach sé anois" doesn't work then?? I thought in previous lessons the sé and sí came after the adjective under some circumstances?

Wouldn't "tá tuirseach ar anois" work too? I know we say "tá tuirseach orm", maybe that's a Munster thing.

You can say either Tá sé tuirseach anois or Tá tuirse air anois.

tá tuirseach orm anois. That is a more correct idiomatic construction, "tá sé tuirseach" is an English construction.
