In general, only nouns can be pluralised. Verbs are not conjugated and therefor do not differentiate between singular and plural.

Here are some examples of singular and plural forms:

father: ffádyr - ffádyrynn
house: dwyr - dwyrynn
exit: útanach - útanachynn
mountain: módan - módanna
company: cumpányd - cumpánydd
river: afon - afonydd
memory: anglaman - anglamanna
song: amrán - amránna
apple: aella - aellanna

Depending on the noun's ending, there are three different plural suffixes: -ynn, -ydd, -anna.
As a rule of thumb, -ynn is used whenever the noun's ending is:
-yr
-ach
-ad
-dh
-l
-r
-s

-ydd is used whenever the noun's ending is:
-yd
-en
-on
-yn
-th

-anna is used whenever the noun's ending is:
-an
-a
-i
