Sláinte! Here are some Irish toasts and salutations to raise your glasses to this New Year’s Eve and welcome 2023.

Here's to a great year!

May your giving hand never fail you.

~~~~~

May we all be alive at this same time next year.

~~~~~

May the Lord keep you in the palm of His hand, and never close His fist too tight!

~~~~~

May you live as long as you want and never want as long as you live!

~~~~~

May the best day of your past be the worst day of your future.

~~~~~

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 your troubles be less,
And your blessings be more.
And nothing but happiness come through your door.

~~~~~

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

~~~~~

Merry met and merry part, I drink to thee with all my heart.

~~~~~

Dunghills rise and castles fall, we are all equal one and all.
