Here is a nice example of alliteration in Gaelic (Gaeilge), which I picked it up recently in an article the Irish Times (January 2009). This type of alliteration is very common in Gaeilge:
" . Focail áirithe nach féidir leat iad a rá; smaointe fírinneacha ar muca magadh meige iad; siúicre á leathadh ar an bhfírinne shearbh ."
This is my translation of it in English:
" Certain words you cannot say; they are truthful thoughts on mocking bleating pigs; sugar that is spread on the cutting truth "
