séideadhblowing
smugsmugamucus, snotm
Is maith an sèideadh sròine do dhuine smug fhaiceal air duine eile. Is maith an séideadh sróine do dhuine smuga fheiceáil ar duine eile. It is a good nose blowing for a person to see snot on another person.
Ma cheannaigheann tu droch-nidh, ceannochaidh tu a rìst go h-aithghearr.Má cheannaíonn tú drochní, ceannóidh tú arís go hathghearr.If you buy low quality, you will soon buy again."If you buy a bad thing, you will soon buy again."
