Using verbs in the future tense.

How do you form the future tense of regular verbs?

When the last vowel of the root form is a broad vowel (a,o,u) – for example, gabh – you simply add -aidh after the root so gabh becomes gabhaidh.

How do you form the future tense of irregular verbs?

These rules do not work for the irregular verbs. It’s better just to learn them. The good news is that they are the most common verbs so you will get to use them lots!
