Good ‘Ole Irish Craic: A Few St. Patrick’s Day Toasts

Here are a few Irish toasts to lift your spirits and hopefully bring a laugh or two...

"In heaven there is no beer ‘tis why we must drink it all here."

"Here’s to you and here’s to me.May we never disagree.But should we start to fight and ‘cuss,Here’s to me."

"May the flower of love never be nipped by the frost of disappointment, nor shadow of grief fall among your family and friends."

"May the roof over your heads be as well thatched, as those inside are well matched."

"May your heart be light and happy,May your smile be big and wide,And may your pockets always havea coin or two inside!"

"May your home always be too small to hold all your friends."

"May neighbors respect you, Trouble neglect you, The angels protect you, And heaven accept you."

"My friends are the best friends.. Loyal, willing and able. Now let’s get to drinking! All glasses off the table!"

"Here’s to the land of the shamrock so green, Here’s to each lad and his darlin colleen, Here’s to the ones we love dearest and most."

"May God bless old Ireland, that’s this Irishman’s toast!"

"I drink to your health when I’m with you, I drink to your health when I’m alone, I drink to your health so often, I’m starting to worry about my own!"

"May the road rise 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 youIn the palm of his hand."

"Here’s to women’s kisses,and to whiskey, amber clear;Not as sweet as a woman’s kiss,but a darn sight more sincere!"

"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!"
