The Irish language is often remarked upon for it's poetic turn of phrase and that is no more obvious in the sean fhocail - or 'old words'. Sean fhocail are well known sentences that some might see as cliché, but when each one of them is considered in more than just passing, the deeper wisdom and cultural insights can be glimpsed.

"Mol an oige agus tiocfaidh sí" translates as “Encourage young people and they will get there.” The concept of the family runs very deep in Irish traditions and can easily be traced back into our ancient past to a time when family was more than just blood, it was Tuath, or tribe.
In this sean focail we catch a glimpse of parenting advice that one can easily see being handed down from an elder. This is a true today as ever when we look to the youth around us in our changing world. The true value of encouragment, instead of criticism can never be underestimated.

"Mol an oige agus tiocfaidh sí" translates as “Encourage young people and they will get there.”
