Chíonn beirt rud nach bhfeiceann duine amháin.Two people see what one person does not.

From Will:

That Chíonn is an alternate form of Feiceann, found widely in the North, but also used by some Munster speakers. It's a bit odd to see nach bhfeiceann in the same utterance. In class, I observed that I haven't run into forms like Nach gcíonn at all, but Dineen's dictionary says that that can happen.

Nonetheless, other sources indicate that modern usage is to use feic- forms with particles. That is, Chíonn sé, but Ní fheiceann sé.
