Cond bó búachaill i mbánsoilsi.

Cond bó búachaill i mbánsoilsi.

(sense * of cow * cowherd * in * white-light)

A herdsman is the good sense of a cow in daylight.

The saying appears in Corpus Iuris Hibernici 72.10-11 where it reinforces the requirement that cattle be under control at all times:

“Ar ata i ndlige (l. i ndligiud) na Feine buachaill oc cach cethrai fri de. Is de ata ‘cond bo buachaill i mbansoillsi’.”
