What is the proper way to pronounce the Irish surname MacShéain?

I'm fairly certain I've spelled it correctly in the tradition Irish way. (Basically, I was going for "Son of Sean" as a surname)

The pronuciation, I'm guessing, is "muc HEY in". Any thoughts or help?

Mac Seáin
(space between Mac and Seáin, accent on á, no lenition of S)

/(m)ək s´a:n´/
It's an Ulster name, so Ulster pronunciation: /(m)ək s´æ:n´/ (/(m)uhc shayne/)

anglicized as MacShane, MacCheyne.
