If anyone could translate this phrase into gaelic it would be greatly appricated.

"a wise head keeps a shut mouth"

A couple of traditional sayings that convey the same idea:

Is binn béal ina thost. (A mouth when silent sounds sweet.)

Is minic a bhris béal duine a shrón. (A man's mouth has often broken his nose.)

Tá seanfhocail eile mar sin ann, nach bhfuil?
