I thought that Níorbh was used before vowels for negative past tense, so now I'm confused? Isn't Níorbh short for 'Ní raibh'?
The past tense negative particle níor doesn't change before a vowel. níor ith me, níor ól mé, etc.
The negative past tense copula is also níor, but that níor does become níorbh before a vowel - Níorbh aisteoir í.
níorbh and ní raibh are not related - bí is an irregular verb, and it uses ní in the past tense, rather than níor.
For the multiple choice version of this sentence, it suggests that "iomáint" is another word for hurling, but I don't recall learning this in the lesson proper. Is this word synonymous with "iománaíocht," or does it have a similar meaning?
