Irish Folk Wisdom

Here’s something new … for Irish language week in 2016, the community of Kilnaleck (County Cavan) put up a dozen printed signs, imparting timeless Irish folk wisdom to the masses. In Irish and English. Not a bad idea, though the design leaves a bit to be desired in some signs. And proofreading was a bit haphazard. But a nice collection of sayings that might come in handy some days …

By the way, hanging the sign of the incurable drinker on a pub … great idea. But beaten at the last hurdle by extolling the virtues of silent pigs on the local butcher’s shop.
