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