An Old Irish Toast

. . .written in both English & Gaelic. Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

May your glass be ever full.
May the roof over your head
be always strong.
And may you be in heaven
for a half hour before
the devil knows you’re dead.

Go raibh do ghloine lán go deo.
Go raibh láidir go breá
an dion thar do cheann.
Go raibh tú í Neamh,
leathúair os comhair
a bhfuil a fhíos ag an diabhal
atá tú bás.
