What do we do when we count numbers on their own?

When counting numbers on their own without a noun, they are preceded by a (a h- before vowels) as follows: a h-aon, a dhà, a trì, a ceithir, a còig, a sia.

When they come before a noun, the a is dropped: aon uair, dà uair, trì uairean, ceithir uairean, còig uairean, sia uairean.

But remember that for one o'clock the aon is dropped.
