My efforts to improve my Irish vocabulary resulted in web searches.
It translates literally as ‘People live in each other’s shadows’ but as I have come to expect with Irish, there are many varied meanings suggested. I list below the ones that I have found in my own order of preference.
No man is an island
United we stand, divided we fall
People need each other
Living in the shadow of each other
We rely on each other for shelter
Man is a social animal
