Proverb of the Day
Tart i ndiaidh an óil, agus brón i ndiaidh an airgid.
Thirst after the drink, and sorrow after the money.
Explanation: This is the result of a night's drinking. The next day you're hungover and dehydrated and you wish you had all that money back. There's a variant of this proverb which says "sorrow after love", implying that thirst is the outcome of drinking too much, and sorrow is the outcome of being too much in love.
