“Cinn” is a form of “ceann” (“head”), so “chun cinn” would more or less mean “ahead”, “forward”. It’s mostly used together with the verb “dul” to mean “progress”, “improvement”.

Tá dul chun cinn nach beag déanta ag an bhfoireann ó fuair siad an bainisteoir nua. (“The team has made a lot of progress since they got the new manager”)
