      Firinscneach means masculine

      baininscneach means feminine

      And the Tuiseal ginideach is the genitive case.

      The tuiseal ginideach is all about possession, or when youre talking about "something of something", ie the beauty of the country.

      When you want to say, for example, "my friends house", there is ownership and you must use tuiseal ginideach.

      In irish they say "the house of my friend"

      "Teach mo charad"

      Notice how the word "cara" changes to "charad"( the h is there because of mo)

      "Something of the something"

      When you want to say things like"the state of the country", "the beauty of ireland", you use tuiseal ginideach. This is common in exam papers.
