    Is there any Galician speaker here?
    Yes, there are but it seems that they didn't see your post or they didn't want to reply so you'll have to be patient until someone answers your question. There aren't many questions about Galician on this forum so I guess Galician speakers won't consult it frequently. Best of luck!

    In standardized Galician no vowels are reduced, so e is /e/ and a is /a/. But in colloquial speech and dialectal forms they certainly are. Have a gander at the wikipedia article on Galician phonology. They admit /ɐ/ and /ɪ/ in final position.
