- Incorrectly attributed to a speech by Irish statesman Éamon de Valera. A longer version is often misquoted as, "comely maidens, dancing at the crossroads". The actual phrase, delivered in a radio broadcast on St. Patrick's Day 1943, mentions "the laughter of happy maidens, whose firesides would be forums for the wisdom of serene old age."
