Ah, those Irish women. Hearts of gold.  
Maidir leis na mná, tá iompar simplí fúthu sa chaoi go mbuaileann siad craiceann, ar uaire, os comhair an tsaoil agus nach dtógtar orthu é.
    A short note far from algorithmic computation of the Old Irish verb :

    The litterary supplement of "Le Monde" (vendredi 10 octobre 2003), has
an article on a book written by a Greek erudite of the Renaissance, Nikander
from Korcyre, who travelled into Northern Europe in 1545, and wrote his
impressions in a quasi-Herodotian ethnographical style. The manuscript
written in Old Greek, was found recently in Venice. ("Voyage en Occident",
Nicandre de Corcyre, Editions Anacharsis, 286 p., 18 €).

About Ireland, here is what he says (from the article, translated from Greek
into French) :

"Vis-à-vis de leur femmes, ils se comportent avec simplicité, au point que
parfois ils leur font l'amour devant tout le monde et que personne n'y voie
de mal"

I leave to others to render this into good English (or Irish).
