Seanfhocail: Bíonn chuile dhuine lách go dtéann bó ina gharraí



We used to turn an old photograph of a painting into an ‘oilpainting’, the photo editor to add the graphics of the apples and the worm and also the graphic design website to create the cow from different shapes and a background with text. We enjoyed doing this.

In class we NEVER EVER translate Irish into English and perhaps the picture could help you guess what this proverbs means, but as we are doing this for our friends in New Zealand, we will tell you that it means ‘Everyone is good humoured until a cow gets into their orchard.’ Many Irish proverbs come from a time when raising animals and growing your own food was very important.
