Proverbs

Nuair a bhíonn an cat amuigh, bíonn an luch ag rince.

When the cat is outside, the mouse does be dancing.

Note: The English language parallel is "When the cat's away, the mice will play". Notice that Irish mice don't just play - they dance (although the seanfhocal does not dare tread into the political minefield of specifying whether mice prefer céilí or set dances).
