  1. When you find the old firm and true never chang them for the new.
    Uake the hay while the sun shines.
    The more hurry the less speed.
    Still water tuns deep.
    Ballaí fúara gníos bean tighe suarach.
    Leave middling alone.
    If "ifs" and "and" mada pots and pans we wouldn't need any tinkets.
    A bad disease never tells a lie.
    A stitch in time saves nine.
    Bad wind that would not favor somebody.
    One good turn deserves another.
    The shelter of the bush is not missed until its cut.
    The mouth of the grave give thing to these who want it.
    The constant dripping wears the stone.
    Wilful waste makes a woeful want.
    It is better to reap late than buy early.
    When it rains it pours.
    Faobhar faobhar bhaineann féar fear maith agus speal géar.
