I've entirely lost track of when to use é or atá after céard/cad.

If an answer to the question would be copular (i.e. either identificational or classificational), then use é in the question; otherwise, use atá (or é atá) in the question.

At galaxy rocker: Why did you write "sa mbosca" instead of "sa bhosca"? Are both forms correct? Are they equivalent?

galaxyrocker’s focus is on Connacht Irish, and in Connacht Irish sa eclipses rather than lenites.

EDIT: Note that in the 2016 Caighdeán, either (den and don) or (sa) can also eclipse.
