Lá Fhéile Pádraig



Happy Saint Patrick's Day!

No, I'm not Irish but I respect the Irish. A great people they are, just ask them!

So have a Guinness, or a Jameson!


I will...




An Irish Blessing

Go n-éirí an bóthar leat 
Go raibh an ghaoth go brách ag do chúl 
Go lonraí an ghrian go te ar d'aghaidh 
Go dtite an bháisteach go mín ar do pháirceanna 
Agus go mbuailimid le chéile arís, 
Go gcoinní Dia i mbos A láimhe thú. 

May the road rise to meet you 
May the wind be always at your back 
May the sun shine warm upon your face, 
The rains fall soft upon your fields 
And until we meet again 
May God hold you in the hollow of His hand.

A Toast
May your glass be ever full.
May the roof over your head be always strong.
And may you be in heaven half an hour before the devil knows you're dead.

Oh, and did ya know that I love the music of the Irish? Well, ya do now.


Sláinte!

  1. Irish music is good. So are red-haired, green-eyed Irish lassies. ;-)

    I'll pass on both the Guinness and Jameson's but I will raise a glass o' JW Green later on. That's close enough. (insert yet another smiley-face thingie here)

Just be polite... that's all I ask. (For Buck)
