Happy St. Patrick's Day, and a top o' the morning to you!

Irish Blessing

May the Good Lord take a liking to you... but not too soon!

Irish Blessing

May you always walk in sunshine.
May you never want for more.
May Irish angels rest their wings right beside your door.

Irish Blessing

May you have warm words on a cold evening, a full moon on a dark night, and the road downhill all the way to your door.

Irish Blessing

May you live to be a hundred years,
With one extra year to repent.

Irish Saying

There are only two kinds of people in the world, The Irish and those who wish they were.

Irish Blessing

May the roof above us never fall in.
And may the friends gathered below it never fall out.

Irish Toast

Saint Patrick was a gentleman
Who through strategy and stealth
Drove all the snakes from Ireland
Here's a drinkee to his health!
But not too many drinkees
Lest we lose ourselves and then...
Forget the good Saint Patrick
And see them snakes again!

Chaucey Olcott and George Graff, Jr.

When Irish eyes are smiling,
Sure 'tis like the morn in spring.
In the lilt of Irish laughter
You can hear the angels sing
When Irish hearts are happy
All the world seems bright and gay
And when Irish eyes are smiling
Sure, they steal your heart away.

Erin Go Bragh!
