Gaelic pronunciation varies depending what part of the country you come from. Roghainn could either be pronounced like round with no d at the end or as row-win (with a quick win at the end - and we should always look for quick wins).   

I suspect roghain has morphed from rogha so as to rhyme with Domhain in the next line, so whichever way you choose to sing romhain, you should pronounce domhain to match.

With an ulster accent both words would be pronounced (roughly) to rhyme with coin.
