Wealth in small cattle

'In ancient Ireland, wealth was referred to neither in terms of money nor ownership of land; instead, the cow was the measure of everything, including the unit of value. An old saying was, "He who is born on Monday, his wealth in cattle will be good. He who is born on Tuesday.... great will be his wealth in small cattle."'
