And if you should feel the need to brush up on your Irish Saying’s, here are a few to last you the day:
“May you live as long as you want,
And never want as long as you live.”
“As you slide down the banister of life,
May the splinters never point the wrong way.”
“If you’re lucky enough to be Irish…
You’re lucky enough!”
“May the Irish hills caress you.”
“There are only two kinds of people in the world, The Irish
And those who wish they were.”
“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.”
