So is "Ní bhainimid dínn ár mbróga" okay too?

Since bain de is a phrasal verb, Ní bhainimid dínn ár mbróga is OK, and could even be preferred. (Ní bhainimid dínn ár gcuid bróg would be best.)

Its insisting on "ní bhainimid" (which i understand, and agree is correct) over "ní bhain muid" (which sounds better to me, and i think it's also correct).

Is this an ulster-ism that's been left out? Or is it an ulster-ism that i misremembered/made up?

The analytic form of Ní bhainimid is Ní bhaineann muid rather than Ní bhain muid.
