Our set of five bookmarks each feature a unique seanfhocal (Irish proverb) that will inspire and motivate you with their timeless wisdom. These bookmarks are perfect for avid readers, students, and anyone who loves to indulge in the pleasure of a good book.


Crafted from premium cardstock, these bookmarks are robust and durable, making them the ideal companion for your favorite novels, textbooks, and journals.


Each bookmark measures 5.5 x by 15 cm, making them the perfect size to fit snugly between the pages of your book without damaging the spine or cover.


The set includes five seanfhocail, each with its own distinct message:

  • Éist le fuaim na habhann agus gheobhair breac – Listen to the sound of the river and you will catch a trout.
  • Ní thagann ciall roimh aois – Sense does not come before age.

  • An rud a scríobhann an púca, léann sé féin é – What the ghost writes, the ghost reads.

  • Tarraingíonn scéal scéal eile – One story leads on to another.

  • Níor bhris focal maith fiacail riamh – A good word never broke a tooth.


These seanfhocail have been passed down through generations and hold a special place in Irish culture and literature. Not only will these bookmarks help you keep your place in your current read, but they will also serve as daily reminders of the timeless wisdom and values of the Irish people.


Whether you're an avid reader or simply looking for a thoughtful and unique gift for a loved one, these seanfhocal bookmarks are a must-have accessory for any book lover.
