Does Irish have a preference between 'ansin' & 'ann' in this context? If so, what's the distinction in usage that it reflects?

Yeah, I put "Ritheann sí go díreach ansin" and it was counted incorrect. I'm wondering why it would be "ann" instead of "ansin" as well.

Irish doesn't use a word like "thither" or "to there" as in "She runs straight to there" for this?

Anonn could be used as a more thither-ish substitute for ann.
