 13 Irish Blessings & Proverbs!

  1. “St. Patrick’s Day is an enchanted time — a day to begin transforming winter’s dreams into summer’s magic.”~A. Cook.~


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

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

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

  5. It’s easy to halve the potato where there’s love.

  6. Do not resent growing old. Many are denied the privilege.

  7. God made time, but man made haste.

  8. There’s no need to fear the wind if your haystacks are tied down.

  9. May your blessings outnumber the shamrocks that grow,
    And may trouble avoid you wherever you go.

  10. May the most you wish for
    Be the least you get.

  11. May you always walk in sunshine.
    May you never want for more.
    May Irish angels rest their wings right beside your door.

  12. A good laugh and a long sleep are the two best cures.

  13. For each petal on the shamrock
    This brings a wish your way,
    Good health, good luck, and happiness
    For today and every day.
