These are some proverbs which I have heard locally.
There was an old woman in this village - Monasterowen formerly who was very fond of saying this proverb - Buy me an egg and I will buy you another which meant - do me a good turn and I will do the same to you.
"Long fair long foul is an old saying used by the local people which means. If we have a long spell of fine weather we usually have a long spell of bad weather after it.
Fáigheann ciáróg ciaróg eile is a local seanfhocal meaning. One lazy person will find out another.
Sometimes when somebody asks my father if he is going to do some particular job he usually answer's - Between two thoughts like Ned Smyth.
Ned Smyth was a school - fellow of my father and was noted for his witty answers. If anybody met Ned on his way home from school and asked him - Well Ned are you coming home from school" Ned usually answered - Between two thoughts.
