Fabhalscéal as Gaeilge/A fable in Irish

First draft here. Revised with suggestions from Wes.

Bhí cat duine éigin ar thaobh an bhótair. Bhí an cat marbh agus an-leata. Ní chuimhin sé na dlíthe bóthair mór. Ní chat duine ar bith é anois.

Ná cuir troid ar leoraí. Buafaidh an leoraí go deimhin.
Somebody's cat was by the side of the road. The cat was dead and very flat. He did not remember the laws of the highway. He is nobody's cat now.

Don't argue with a truck. The truck is sure to win.
