Ankole is well known for a rich tradition. The oral traditions of the Banyankole are one thing that needs special attention. This study analysed some selected proverbs and the analysis further focused on how irony enriches meaning in these proverbs. Many proverbs in Ankole do not directly suggest meaning, some (if not many) of them have got a component of irony in them. This is exactly what this study sought to analyse. The study was conducted basing on the qualitative methods of data collective and after data was gathered, the analysis of each proverb was done manually. The interview method of data gathering was the most widely used during the field sessions.
