Muc Mhéith


A Fat Pig

Old Irish: Trí báis ata ferr bethaid: bás iach, bás muicce méithe, bás foglada.

Modern Irish: Trí bhás atá níos fearr ná beatha: bás bradáin, bás muice méithe, bás foghlaí.

English: Three deaths that are better than life: the death of a salmon, the death of a fat pig, the death of a plunderer.
