Dennis cited the following quotation from O'Davoren:
>1326. Oscar cách i ceird araile.
= Everyone is an "oscar" in another's craft.
> [...] is this one found anywhere in the Laws?
Yes, in at least two texts. One of them is 'Bretha Nemed', in a passage
edited and translated by Liam Breatnach in 'Uraicecht na ríar' at pp
21-28. Professor Breatnach translates this as 'everyone is ignorant of
the craft of another'.
I seem to remember that Binchy used this maxim in one of his
publications (citing it as a maxim applicable in the context of what he
was talking about), perhaps when reviewing someone else's work?
It is most definitely a proverb.
