Book Description

Ireland, the land of saints and scholars, has always been prized for its folk wisdom. Here are over 250 "seanfhocail" (literally, old words) - proverbs and sayings - with their translations, that still resonate today. They remind us that “Ní féidir an sheanfhocail a shárú” (You can’t beat an old saying); “An té a bhíonn siúlach, bíonn sé scéalach (He who has travelled has knowledge); and “Fuighilleach síl, fuighilleach cíosa, agus fuighilleach carad, trí rud chomh maith agus bí ag aon duine riamh. (A surplus of seed, a surplus of rent (money), and a surplus of friends, three things as good as anyone ever had). Good advice in everyone! A perfect travel companion.
