Proverbs

Daltaí Shop: Featured Item:

Nuair a thiocas an bás ní imeoidh sé folamh.

When death will come, he won't go away empty.

Note: This is an obvious reference to "The Grim Reaper" and the inevitability of death.

Note also: Irish uses different verb tenses here than Béarla would. In Béarla the customary sequence is a clause in the present tense (When death comes...) followed by the body of the sentence in the future tense (...he won't go away empty). Irish, on the other hand, puts both parts of such a sentence in the future tense.

Return to Death.
