Great Irish sayings for St. Paddy’s day….

My favourite first…

  • May you be at the gates of heaven an hour before the devil knows you’re dead!

  • Here’s health to your enemies’ enemies!
  • 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 pint and another one!
  • May neighbours respect you, trouble neglect you, the angels protect you, and Heaven accept you.
  • May you live to be 100 years, with one extra year to repent.
  • Tis better to spend money like there’s no tomorrow than to spend tonight like there’s no money!
  • May the saddest day of your future be no worse than the happiest day of your past.
  • A man loves his sweetheart the most, his wife the best, but his mother the longest.
  • There is no such thing as bad publicity except your own obituary.
  • Do not resent growing old. Many are denied the privilege.
  • May the most you wish for be the least you get.
  • May misfortune follow you the rest of your life but never catch up.
  • There is only one thing worse than being talked about, and that is not being talked about.
  • Here’s to Hell! May the stay there be as fun as the way there!


    and the best for last…..
  • May the road rise up to meet you.
    May the wind be always at your back.
    May the sun shine warm upon your face; the rains fall soft upon your fields
    and until we meet again,
    may God hold you in the palm of His hand.
