    An Irish Blessing

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

    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.

    Here’s to you and yours, And to mine and ours, And if mine and ours ever come Across you and yours, I hope you and yours will do As much for mine and ours, As mine and ours have done For you and yours.

    Happy St. Patrick's Day Best Of Luck To You And Yours

    Q: How do you ruin St. Patrick's day for an Irishman?

    A: Make him the designated driver.

    May your blessings outnumber
    The shamrocks that grow,
    And may trouble avoid you
    Wherever you go.

    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.

    May you always have work for your hands to do.
    May your pockets hold always a coin or two.
    May the sun shine bright on your windowpane.
    May the 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 the sun always shine in your face
    may the wind always blow in your back
    may you be a half an hour in Heaven afore the devil knows you`re dead.

    Interesting fact in Quebec 40% of the population are of Irish descent,
    and we have the longest running St-Patrick`s day parade in the world

    PS pass the beer

    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. :)

    Saint Patrick was a gentleman, who through strategy and stealth
    Drove all the snakes from Ireland, here's a drink to his health!
    But not too many drinks, lest we lose ourselves and then
    Forget the good Saint Patrick, and see them snakes again!

    I sat within a valley greenI sat me with my true loveMy sad heart strove to choose betweenThe old love and the new loveThe old for her, the new that madeMe think on Ireland dearlyWhile soft the wind blew down the glenAnd shook the golden barleyTwas hard the woeful words to frameTo break the ties that bound usBut harder still to bear the weightOf foreign chains around usAnd so I said, "The mountain glenI'll seek at morning earlyAnd join the brave United MenWhile soft winds shake the barley"While sad I kissed away her tearsMy fond arms 'round her flingingThe foeman's shot burst on our earsFrom out the wildwood ringingA bullet pierced my true love's sideIn life's young spring so earlyAnd on my breast in blood she diedWhile soft winds shook the barleyI bore her to some mountain streamAnd many's the summer blossomI placed with branches soft and greenAbout her gore-stained bosomI wept and kissed her clay-cold corpseThen rushed o'er vale and valleyMy vengeance on the foe to wreakWhile soft winds shook the barleyBut blood for blood without remorseI've taken at Oulart HollowAnd laid my true love's clay-cold corpseWhere I full soon may followAs 'round her grave I wander drearNoon, night and morning earlyWith breaking heart when e'er I hearThe wind that shakes the barley[SUP][[/SUP]

    May pure be the joys that surround you,
    May true be the hearts that love you.<><><><><><><>

    4. Wild Rover
