5 Excellent Irish Proverbs on Love and Marriage

The Irish have a way with words.

Today I’m sharing some of the (many) Irish Proverbs on love and marriage that I came across when researching my sweet romance full-length novel, set in Ireland,

Oh Danny Boy.


“If you want praise, die. If you want love, marry.”

“It’s easy to halve the potato where there’s love.”

“Honey is sweet, but don’t lick it off a briar.”

“Beauty won’t make the kettle boil.”

“Honey is sweet, but don’t lick it off the briar.”
