Mol an lá um thránóna.

Praise the day in the evening.

Note: This popular proverb has been encapsulated in the English expression, "At the end of the day, ..." Do not be hasty to praise or even comment on an event, a life, or a period of time while it is in progress. It could change later and make you wrong.
