Foilsiodh an chéad eagran sa bhlian 1926. Cé gur i gCorca Dhuibhne a chuala sé formhór na seanfhocail ar dtús. Pádraig Ua Maoileoin a d’ullmhaig agus a chuir ceithre chéad sean fhocal breise leis féin isteach ann.
First published in 1926, most of these proverbs were first heard by the Author in West Kerry, but could be found in any Gaeltacht in Munster . This book of Proverbs was prepared by Pádraig Ó Maoileoin and he added 400 of his own proverbs to it.
