The folks at Irish Central have really got me in the spirit of St Patrick's Day! They have a way for you to get a little Irish culture going before you celebrate. Some of these Irish sayings are things you have heard your whole life, and maybe just whip out around March 17th. But I love the Irish proverbs and prayers as well, and some of my favorites are below.

 

  • A man's best friend is his mother until he meets his wife
  • May all your troubles be little ones
    and all your little ones be trouble free
  • May you always have money in your pocket
    a woman to love
    and a smile on your face
  • There are good ships and there are wood ships,
    the ships that sail the sea.
    But the best ships are friendships,
    and may they always be
  • May you be at the gates of heaven an hour before the devil knows your dead!
  • May the wind always be at your back
