Irish phrases for St. Patrick's day or any time at all! Photo by: Photocall Ireland

----------------------

May there be a generation of children
On the children of your children.

----------------------

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

----------------------

Here's that we may always have
A clean shirt
A clean conscience
And a punt in our pocket.

----------------------

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

----------------------

May I see you grey
And combing your grandchildren's hair.

----------------------

May the Lord keep you in His hand
And never close His fist too tight.

----------------------

May your neighbors respect you,
Trouble neglect you,
The angels protect you,
And heaven accept you.

----------------------

Mothers [fathers] hold their children?s hands for just a little while...
And their hearts forever.

----------------------

May you live as long as you want,
And never want as long as you live.

----------------------

"It is better to spend money like there's no tomorrow
than to spend tonight like there's no money."
-P.J. O'Rourke

----------------------

Here's to a long life and a merry one.
A quick death and an easy one.
A pretty girl and an honest one.
A cold beer-and another one!

----------------------

May the grass grow long on the road to Hell for want of use.

----------------------

Here's health to your enemies' enemies!

----------------------

May you have the hindsight to know where you've been
the foresight to know where you're going
and the insight to know when you're going too far.

----------------------

Health and a long life to you.
Land without rent to you.
A child every year to you.
And if you can't go to heaven,
May you at least die in Ireland.

----------------------

Bless you and yours
As well as the cottage you live in.
May the roof overhead be well thatched
And those inside be well matched.

----------------------

May the Irish hills caress you.
May her lakes and rivers bless you.
May the luck of the Irish enfold you.
May the blessings of Saint Patrick behold you

----------------------

May you always come more than you go.

----------------------

Here's to you, as good as you are.
Here's to me as bad as I am.
As good as you are and as bad as I am,
I'm as good as you are, as bad as I am.

----------------------

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

----------------------

May you be poor in misfortune,
rich in blessings,
slow to make enemies,
quick to make friends.
But rich or poor, quick or slow,
may you know nothing but happiness
from this day forward.

----------------------

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.
-Mike Anderson

----------------------

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!
