Await further input ...

One small correction: sionnach has the stress on the 2nd syllable (in Munster, anyway) – shu-NACH :)

Ah, so it should be. (Fixed above.)

Here it is at Teanglann:

So is the stress on aigh in an tSionnaigh as well? - on tyun-IG?

It's TYUN-ig

Here's the rule for ach in Munster, in case you are curious:
When the second syllable contains ach and there is no long syllable in the word, the second syllable bears the stress: coileACH, beannACHT, casACHtach

It seems kinda hard to follow at first, but it's actually pretty easy once you get the hang of it.

Thanks for the clarification, a WFM. :wave:
