Is "saor" used to show that something is not of a good quality. In the sense of: these clothes are of poor quality, for example.

It's used the same way in Irish as it is in English in this case - you can use "saor" to imply that the quality reflects the price.
"saor suarach" -"cheap and nasty"
"saor spéiriúil" - "cheap and cheerful"
