This be an "offshoot" of this thread but my elderly Irish neighbor(in her 90`s) has great SAYINGS. Like when she and her late husband would go to a restaurant and there weren`t many people there"well....there wasen`t a sinner in the place". If she had to go shopping, it was ".....and don`t I have to go shopping?" the best one was "I haven`t seen that person in donkeys years"  ;D...I used that one on Mairead C. after a show a few years ago when I told her"I`ve been coming to shows for donkeys years"....she looked at me , quite startled and I said "I have an Irish neighbor"  ;D

Great idea!

Here's another one:

Giorraíonn beirt bóthar (two people shorten the road)

It means company makes the time seem to pass more quickly and pleasantly on a long journey.
