Some time ago there was an old deaf man.
One day he went to the market with potatoes.
A woman came along and said "Good morrow my good man" "Fourpence a stone mam"
"How is Kate and the child" ?
"The best that ever was boiled".
"I think you are mad old man"
"Not a half penny less mam".

Lá dá raibh Eoghan Ruadh ag siubhal, do bhuail sagart leis 7 tosnuigheadar ag cainnt.
Ag an am gceadna d'till Fíach dubh ós a gcionn.
"Catain a bheidh cainnt ag an bfhíac dubh?".
Thosnuig Eoghan Ruadh.
"Nuair a thiocfaidh an míol mór ar an moing.
Nuair a thiocfaidh an Fhrainnc go Sliabh Mis.
Nuair a chaillfidh an sagart an sainnt.
Seadh a thiofaidh an cainnt don Fhiach dhuibh ".
