Hi David,

The way it’s pronounced in Irish is more like “saa’win” but in Connacht dialect is more like “sown”, I think the Anglicised pronunciation is more like “sow’in” and this sounds more similar to the Scots Gaelic. There’s a good resource online that helps with Irish pronunciation in three major dialects.
