I'm curious as to why bags wouldn't be in the plural form. Is it because it is indicated by the number so a singular form would suffice?

Most nouns don't go into the plural after numbers in Irish. People do go to genitive plural, after the special people numbers though. And there's some exceptions that have a special plural.
