IT’S MOTHER’S DAY – a time to celebrate the generosity wisdom of the women who gave us life, right?

We’d like to hear from you on the best piece of advice your mother ever gave you – and the worst, if that’s what sticks in your mind. Tell us in the comments below.

For inspiration, you might recall this video vox pop from our friends at TheLineIreland who took to the streets of Dublin last September to ask: What did you learn from your mammy?

Selected quotes:

  • “How to get out of a car properly when you’re wearing a skirt.”
  • “Manners.”
  • “Wear clean underwear in case you get hit by a bus.”
  • “Basically, everything I can do in life.”
