  1. It seems to me that when the word is introduced it it pronounced with an s sound the the beginning but when used in a sentence it sounds like it starts with an h sound. Please explain this to me

    1. The ‘s’ in ‘síochán’ is a ‘sh’ sound as it is a slender ‘s’. This is because it is beside an ‘i’, a slender vowel.
      This tells you more on slender and broad – https://www.bitesize.irish/blog/the-sounds-of-irish-gaelic-part-1/
      The ‘h’ sound you’re hearing is something called lenition. This puts a ‘h’ or lenites / softens the sound.
