Ní fhaca siad na réaltaí inné mar ní raibh sé dorcha. Chonaic mé na réaltaí aréir.

Could 'réaltaí' also be used when describing things like movie stars, sport stars, etc...?

Shouldn't it be "Níor fhca" because of the past tense? GRMA.

Usually, the negative form of the past tense is formed with níor, but feic is one of the exceptions (see also the tips and notes section in 'Verbs: Past 1').

Thus, the negative past form of feic uses instead of níor : Ní fhaca... In the same vein, the question past form of feic uses an instead of ar : An bhfaca...?
