    Irish Blessings
    May the road rise to meet you.
    May the wind be always at your back.
    May the sun shine warm upon your face.
    And rains fall soft upon your fields.
    And until we meet again,
    May God hold you in the hollow of His hand.

    May you live as long as you want,
    And never want as long as you live.

    Always remember to forget
    The things that made you sad.
    But never forget to remember
    The things that made you glad.

    Always remember to forget
    The friends that proved untrue.
    But never forget to remember
    Those that have stuck by you.

    Always remember to forget
    The troubles that passed away.
    But never forget to remember
    The blessings that come each day.

    May the saddest day of your future be no worse
    Than the happiest day of your past.

    May the roof above us never fall in.
    And may the friends gathered below it never fall out.

    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.

    May there be a generation of children
    On the children of your children.

    May you live to be a hundred years,
    With one extra year to repent!

    May the Lord keep you in His hand
    And never close His fist too tight.

    May your neighbors respect you,
    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.

    May your pockets be heavy and your heart be light,
    May good luck pursue you each morning and night.

    Walls for the wind,
    And a roof for the rain,
    And drinks beside the fire -
    Laughter to cheer you
    And those you love near you,
    And all that your heart may desire!

    May God be with you and bless you,
    May you see your children's children,
    May you be poor in misfortune, rich in blessings.
    May you know nothing but happiness
    From this day forward.

    May God grant you many years to live,
    For sure He must be knowing
    The earth has angels all too few
    And heaven is overflowing.

    May peace and plenty be the first
    To lift the latch to your door,
    And happiness be guided to your home
    By the candle of Christmas.

    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.


    Happy St. Patrick's Day,

    I believe Savannah Georgia's is one of the biggest. Go figure, redneck Irish.

    Hello Special K,

    Well, there are a lot of Irish in the South. It's an ironic tragedy that at the Battle of Fredericksburg in December of 1862, during the American Civil War, Irish regiments of the Union Army hopelessly charged in the open against well entrenched Irish regiments of the Confederacy behind a stone wall at Marye's Heights dying en masse and were cheered proudly for their bravery by those who shot them down.

    Nope. The largest is in NYC. The very first was held in Boston. Also...

    The Canadian city of Montreal, in the predominantly French-speaking province of Québec has the longest continually running Saint Patrick's day parade in North America, since 1824
