Is minic cuma aingeal ar an Diabhal féin.

is m’in-ək’ kum-ə aŋ-g’el
er’ ən d’iə-vəl f’em’

There is often the look of an angel on the Devil himself.

Note: A familiar English expression with a similar meaning would be the reference to someone as a wolf in sheep's clothing. The Irish word cuma has the meaning of shape, form or appearance. Although the camera may not lie, the usage here amounts to an outright affirmation of the fact that appearances are deceiving.
