I heard "sibh", although not too clear either. Is there a real difference in pronunciation or would you get this from context?

The "ia" in "siad" is a diphthong - you can hear both vowels. It's clear enough in this recording, but that may be a matter of practice. You can clearly hear the difference in standalone exercises, like these:

"Tá sibh" - https://www.duolingo.com/comment/4294331
