"E`irinn go Bra`ch"


May you always have walls for the winds.
A roof for the rain, tea beside the fire.
Laughter to cheer you, those you love near you,
And all your heart might desire.

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 gone.

* A drink precedes a story.
* Time is a great story teller.
* A friend's eye is a good mirror.
* Even a small thorn causes festering.
* Good as drink is, it ends in thirst.
* It is a long road that has no turning.
* As the big hound is, so will the pup be.
* A trade not properly learned is an enemy.
* Put silk on a goat, and it's still a goat.
* When the liquor was gone the fun was gone.
* There is no fireside like your own fireside.
* It is not a secret if it is known by three people.
* It takes time to build castles. Rome was not built in a day.
* The man with the boots does not mind where he places his foot.
* If you do not sow in the spring you will not reap in the autumn.
* When a twig grows hard it is difficult to twist it. Every beginning is weak.

These things, I warmly wish for you-
Someone to love,
Some work to do,
A bit of o’ sun A bit o’ cheer
And a guardian angel Always near.

God Bless You and have a great St. Patrick's Day
