Proverb of the Day
Is iad na muca ciúine a itheann an mhin.
The quiet pigs are the ones eating the meal.
Explanation: They can't make noise, as their mouths are full. Likewise, children who can't be heard are probably up to no good, as they're being quiet in the hopes of passing unnoticed. Similarly, a lad never seen out and about with a girl could be getting all the action on the sly.
