The Castles of Ireland

There’s an Irish proverb that, translated from Gaelic, means something similar to “by degrees the castles are built”. To translate again to a more common idiom, “Rome wasn’t built in a day”, or important work takes time. It seems fitting that the Irish version should contain reference to castles, given that there are over 30, 000 scattered throughout the country today, built and weathered over hundreds of years.
