Irish sayings, proverbs and prayers for St. Patrick's Day
Some of the most-famous words to ever come out of Ireland
A Merry Christmas this December
To a lot of folks I don't remember.
May there always be work for your hands to do.
May your purse always hold a coin or two.
May the sun always shine warm on your windowpane.
May a rainbow be certain to follow each rain.
May the hand of a friend always be near you.
And may God fill your heart with gladness to cheer you.
May you live as long as you want,
And never want as long as you live.
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.
Bottoms up or bottoms down,
Either way no one will frown.
May the leprechauns dance over your bed and bring you sweet dreams.
Experience is the comb that life gives a bald man.
May the wind always be at your back.
May you be at the gates of heaven an hour before the devil knows your dead!
Surely, a fine husband is he that
flinches at the mere raisin' of his
wife's fair hand.
- P. Ohmann
Here's to you and here's to me.
May we never disagree.
But should we start to fight and 'cuss,
Here's to me.
- Frank Masterson
Here's to it and for it and do it again.
For those that get to it
And refuse to do it,
May never get to it
To do it again.
There are good ships and there are wood ships,
the ships that sail the sea.
But the best ships are friendships,
and may they always be.
O b'ido hocai, is deoch deas e sin
- Donaill Mac Bruan
Good health, good life, good beer!
- Ed Quigley
May the most you wish for is the least you get!
- Jay O Brain
Here's to our wives,
and here's to our sweethearts,
may the two never meet!
May the road rise up before you,
and the wind be always at your back,
and the good Lord hold you in the hollow of his hands.
Every man is sociable until a cow invades his garden.
May you always have money in your pocket
a woman to love
and a smile on your face.
May those who love us, love us.
And those that don't love us,
May God turn their hearts.
And if He doesn't turn their hearts,
May he turn their ankles.
So we'll know them by their limping.
May you have length with your days,
and strength with your step,
and may each season have a reason
to celebrate your faith in mankind!
To live above with the Saints we love,
Ah, that is the purest glory.
To live below with the Saints we know,
Ah, that is another story.
May the wind you break always blow down wind.
Always remember that hindsight is the best insight to foresight.
May the hinges of our friendship never grow rusty!
May all your troubles be little ones
and all your little ones be trouble free.
The words that I've said I meant when I spoke
and remember my words of wisdom
feck'em if you can't take a joke.
