Proverb of the Day
"Sea, tá an méid sin de ghnó an earraigh déanta agam," mar a dúirt an fear tar éis dó a bhean a chur.
"Well, there's that much of the spring work done," said the man when he had planted his wife.
Explanation: Said humorously after completing a big job; the planting is the biggest work of the spring. There's a play on words here, since the same word is used in Irish for "to plant" and "to bury".
