"Na Ceithre Chúirteanna" an leagan ceart, ós rud é gur ainm áite atá ann.

Sin an leagan a húsáidtear ar an suíomh Greasáin oifigiúil [1] (cé go bhfuil an gramadach saghas aiteach ansiúd). D'athainmnigh mé an leathanach.--Gabriel Beecham 13:03, 5 Meitheamh 2006 (UTC)
Sin é an leagan traidisiúnta freisin. Sílim gurb é sin an leagan a bhí ag Cú Uladh ina leabhar faoi Éirí Amach na Cásca, mar atá, Bliain na hAiséirí, fosta. Panu Petteri Höglund 13:22, 5 Meitheamh 2006 (UTC)

New correction needed[athraigh foinse]

Guys, I am sorry. It must be Na Ceithre Cúirteanna after all. The rule is:

- Main rule: number followed by singular, after 2-6 it must be aspirated, after 7-10 eclipsed.

- Secondary rule: numbers from 3 on followed by plural (or a special number plural, such as "bliana"), neither aspiration nor eclipsis after 3-6, but eclipsis after 7-10.

The secondary rule is applied when the noun is a unit of measure ("ceann" for "one" counts as such): dhá bhliain, trí bliana, ceithre bliana, cúig bliana, sé bliana, seacht mbliana, ocht mbliana, naoi mbliana, deich mbliana.

The secondary rule is also applied to names, such as Four Courts.

So, "Na Ceithre Cúirteanna" it must be.

The version "Na Ceithre Chúirteanna" is, incidentally, possible in Ulster dialect, and that is where I must have picked it up. Panu Petteri Höglund 13:19, 1 Deireadh Fómhair 2007 (UTC)
