  • Beef to the heels like a Mullingar heifer

  • Eight lives for the men and nine for the women

  • Wherever there are women there's talking, and wherever there's geese there's cackling

  • Irishwomen have a dispensation from the pope to wear the thick ends of their legs downwards

  • Women are shy and shame prevents them from refusing a man.

  • Everything dear is a woman's fancy

  • Like an Irish wolf she barks at her own shadow

  • She wipes the plate with the cat's tail

  • More hair than tit, like a mountain heifer

  • Women are stronger than men, they do not die of wisdom

  • When the old woman is hard pressed, she has to run

  • It's difficult to trust a woman

  • Man to the hills, woman to the shore

  • Beat a woman with a hammer and you'll have gold

  • 'Tis as hard to see a woman cry, as a goose go barefoot

  • Where comes a cow the wiseman lay down (St.Colmcille), there follows a woman, and where comes a woman follows trouble

  • Only a fool would prefer food to a woman

  • Don't be ever in court or a castle without a woman to make your excuse

  • An excuse is nearer to a woman than her apron

  • There is nothing sharper than a woman's tongue

  • A woman without is she who has neither pipe nor child

  • The yellow praiseach (kale) of the fields that brings the Meath women to harm
