Happy St. Patrick’s Day! In honor of it, here are some attributes attributed to the Irish and a drinking toast.

“The Irish don’t know what they want and are prepared to fight to the death to get it”

“The Irish ignore anything they can’t drink or punch.”

“The Irish gave the bagpipes to the Scotts as a joke, but the Scotts haven’t seen the joke yet.”

“God is good to the Irish, but no one else is; not even the Irish”

Irish Drinking Toasts

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 dead.

Here’s to me, and here’s to you,
And here’s to love and laughter-
I’ll be true as long as you,
And not one moment after.

Here’s to you and yours
And to mine and ours.
And if mine and ours
Ever come across to 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!

Health and life to you;
The mate of your choice to you;
Land without rent to you,
And death in Eirinn.

Here’s a toast to your enemies’ enemies!
