    Does this mean they use just one bicycle?


    It's taking getting a backie to a whole new level


    Is there a general rule about when to use i, in and when to use sa, san when saying the word "in" in Irish? Thanks!


    The Irish for "in" is i.

    The Irish for "in the" is sa.

    As both of these forms end with a vowel, they take an additional n when they come before a word that starts with a vowel sound - in áit éigin, san áit sin.

    (There are a few other places where in is used, but they're a bit more advanced).


    autonomous would be better used here
