Why does mairteoil here have a séimhiú, but in other sentences there is often no séimhiú after an/the?

"mairteoil" is a feminine noun, and feminine nouns take a séimhiú after the singular definite article.

"mairteoil" - "beef"
"an mhairteoil" - "the beef"

Should there be a hyphen after ró? Is it rómhór or ró-mhór?
