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.”

Irish Blessing

May the wind be always at your back,
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
May the rains fall soft upon fields
And until we meet again
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.”

A thousand welcomes when anyone comes…
That’s the Irish for You!”

From them you meet on the road.

for just a little while…  And their hearts forever.”

Send happiness to you.”

Hold no dregs of sorrow.”

All the women you’ll ever want,
And heaven when you die.”
