An Úr Sídhe or An Sídhe Úr?
Or both wrong?

Both wrong.
What do you want to say?

Interesting, the way that it is wrong doesn't in any way suggest my intention? Of course my assumption is you are trying to help.

It is the wrong way of saying The Fresh, New, Renewed, or Reborn Fairy Sí, Síd, Sídhe, Sídach.

Thanks for the warm welcome and offer of help.

In the old spelling it should be An Síodh Úr or An tSíodh Úr (it can be either masculine of feminine). It means "the new fairy mound".

Are you saying these forms are gender neutral?
Oh yes , and thank you.

I guess the gender depends on the dialect, but the dictionary doesn't say where it's feminine and where it's masculine.
