Imíonn an tuirse ach fanann an tairbhe.

The tiredness leaves but the profit remains.

A group of people which comes together to help a neighbor or to accomplish some community project is known as a "meitheal". It would put one in mind of the "barn raisings" which were common in American pioneer days.
