Do coinín and sicín have the same ending sound?

For coinín, I hear kuh neen
For sicín, I hear sheh kin

Am I hearing these wrong?

For sicín, I say shick -een, coinín is cone-een but it may differ in another dialect

Within the same dialect, they end with the same sounds... Now, Munster Irish would stress these words on the last syllable, while C and U Irish would stress the first syllable. And the stressed -ín is long while the unstressed one isn't (or less so).

I think you can say sicín as both -
shick - een
shi - keen
- I prefer this.

but both have ee sound.


coinín -
kon - een
ko - neen
- I prefer this.

Actually, Brid, I pronounce them as you do. My attempt at pronunciation is not as good
