Imigh is an intransitive verb - it doesn't take an object, so you can't use imigh to say "we left the house", unless you add a preposition (as). As English doesn't use a preposition, fág is often pressed into service, though the meaning of d'fhágamar an teach and d'imíomar as an teach is slightly different.
"Leave" doesn't have an object in "We leave in the morning", so imigh is the appropriate verb to use, as there isn't even implied object.
https://forum.duolingo.com/comment/10981166/Eclipsis One short answer is that you don't eclipse after "go" or "go dtí" when there is no "an," but you do after "i."
Why would it be eclipsed? There is nothing in this exercise to cause Baile Átha Cliath to be eclipsed.
