Dia daoibh!
Just wondering if anybody can help me to decipher when and where to use the different names for north south east and west - are are they all interchangeable?

PS - i know there are indicators preceeding the word (i.e. n, m1, in etc) but i have not managed to deciphered these yet!

NORTH = n tuaisceart m1; adj tuaisceartach, aduaidh; adv (in) thuaidh, ó thuaidh, aduaidh

SOUTH = deisceart m1; adj deisceartach, aneas, theas; adv (in) theas, ó dheas, aneas;

EAST = n oirthear m1; adj oirthearach, anoir, thoir; adv (in) thoir, soir, anoir;

WEST = n iarthar m1; adj iartharach, aniar, thiar; adv (in) thiar, siar, aniar;

le buíochas! :help:

The ancient Irish worshiped the Sun God (and many other lessor Gods) and our system of directions is based on that. :flehan:

Imagine you are facing the rising sun i.e. East.

Siar or Taobh Thiar duit (behind you) is the West.
You are look Soir or Taobh Thoir towards the East.
Taobh ó Dheas (to your right) is the South.
Taobh ó Thuaidh is North.

Aniar = "From the West" i.e. Gaoithe Aniar "Westerly Wind"
Anoir = "From the East"
Aduaidh = "From the North"
Aneas = "From the South"
