As the old cock crows so the young cock learns.

If it's drowning you’re after, don’t torment yourself with shallow water.

Tis better to buy a small bouquet And give to your friend this very day, Than a bushel of roses white and red To lay on his coffin after he's dead.

Its no use carrying an umbrella if your shoes are leaking.

Here's to those who wish us well, as for the rest, they can go to Hell!

That one suffers from a double-dose of original sin: The Bible proposes that when Adam ate the forbidden fruit, he cast a state of sin on all of mankind. Today, if a child is particularly mischievous, he's said to have been twice-cursed by Adam's slip-up. The phrase became popular in the 1880s, when proponents of British rule over Ireland attributed the Irishmen's depravity of character (and the famine, some argued) to their second helping of original sin.

May you live long, Die happy, And rate a mansion in heaven.

May your troubles be less And your blessings be more. And nothing but happiness Come through your door.

May there be a fox on your fishing hook And a hare on your bait And may you kill no fish Until St. Brigid's Day.
