The Irish are some of the most imaginative talkers in the world, and our lyrical language would be nothing without our proverbs. This St. Patrick’s Day, Kilkenny County Council will be bringing our wonderful linguistic heritage to life, mar is tír gan teanga, tír gan anam. Take a socially distanced stroll along the majestic Parade to see our ancient proverbs.
Hop, skip or jump between all of the seanfhocail, while trying to remember your cúpla focal to figure out what they all mean! You might gain some Irish wisdom on the way, or maybe just a new saying to add to your gift of the gab collection. Na déan dearmad, is fearr Gaeilge briste ná Bearla cliste.
After you’ve made your best guess at them all, it’s time to head to the riverside at Marketyard (beside city bus stop) to find the translations. See if you can match them all. Let us know how you got on using the #kilkennyingreen and tagging us on social media.
