Do not crow until you are out of the wood.

Collected by: - Eamonn Ó Nialláin, Roughan
Told by: - Edward Neylon ,Roughan (his father)

A whistling girl and a crowing hen there is never luck in the house they are in.
A stitch in time saves nine.
Is fearr rith maith ná droch-sheasamh.
Much wants more.

Collected by:- Áine Nic Mhathúna, Ballycashen,
Told by: - Pat Mc Mahon, Ballcashen, (her father)

You cannot hold water in a strainer.
Half a loaf is better than no bread.
He who laughs last, laughs best.
Too far east is west.
Dont ever put a job on the long finger.
