Proverb of the Day
Seachain tigh an tábhairne nó is bairnigh is beatha dhuit.
Stay away from the pub or you'll have to live on limpets.
Explanation: Limpets are a shellfish that can be had for nothing on the shore, but they're not really the best of food. They have a powerful taste and an effect much like beans. Anyone who spends all his money in the pub will be left with nothing else to eat.
