Proverb of the Day
Ní raibh a dhóthain clainne ag fear bocht riamh.
A poor man never had enough children.
Explanation: The poor tend to have large families, the rich small ones. The poor often rely on their families to help them do their work and to look after them in their old age. As shown by many examples in this century, as countries get richer, their birth rates drop.
