ó thús go deireadh from start to finish
ó dhuine go duine from one person to another
ó lá go lá from day to day
ó áit go háit from place to place
ó bhun go barr from bottom to top
ó éirí go luí don ghrian from the rising to the setting of the sun
ó dhubh go dubh from morning till night

seanfhocal na seachtaine proverb of the week
Tús maith, leath na hoibre A good beginning is half the work
Tá cluasa fada ar mhuca beaga. Children hear everything “Little pigs have long ears”
Chomh cinnte is atá cluas ar do leiceann. “As sure as an ear is on your cheek”

[I have been reading George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire (the Game of Thrones series) over the last few
months. It seems like a lot of the characters in it have had one or both ears lopped off. Hence I am less impressed by this last
seanfhocal as an expression of certainty than I would have been at the beginning of the year.]

eagla fear
fearg anger
tuáilled>

towel
cluas capáin handle of a cup “ear of a cup”
cupán bodhar cup with a broken handle “deaf cup”
mar atá sí as she is
mar a bhfuil sí where she is
aghaidh face, front, aspect
ar aghaidh facing, forward
in aghaidh against, in return for
le aghaidh for

Pronunciation note: ao is like a broad é in Munster. Like a broad í elsewhere.
