To add to the confusion it would be "á dhéanamh" in Cork.

Like in cad ’ tánn tú á dhéanamh?, an rud atáim á dhéanamh?

Ha, I did forsee this one in my first post. :P (but didn’t really expect that in Munster)

:??:
I can't imagine them to be correct.
Does anybody have original examples?

I could only imagine:
Cad atá tú a dhéanamh?
Cad atá tú ag déanamh?
Cad a bhfuil tú á dhéanamh?
Cad atá á dhéanamh agat?


(in bold those forms a prescriptive grammar would recognise as correct. ;))

Basically they only say "Cad 'tá á dhéanamh agat?" never the structures with "a dhéanamh" and "ag déanamh".

Some younger speakers don't say the "agat" and say "tú" as the subject instead, but this isn't really a dialect feature I think it's just the language being in a very weak state.
