There’s a saying that on March 17, everyone has a little Irish in their blood. That certainly seems to be true – and I go ahead and claim the Irish on my grandmother’s side, even though she continuously clarified that it was “Scots-Irish.”
Regardless of whether or not your ancestors hailed from the Emerald Isle, there’s a decent chance you’ll be out spreading green-shaded merriment with your friends this month. So we’re here to school you up on 7 classic Irish toasts to make your day more authentic.
#1. Good Luck
May your pockets be heavy and your heart be light, may good luck pursue you each morning and night.
#2. What We Deserve
May we get what we want, may we get what we need, but may we never get what we deserve.
#3. On Counting Your Blessings
A trout in the pot is better than a salmon in the sea.
May the good Lord take a liking to you…but not too soon.
#5. For The Singles
Here’s to being single, drinking doubles, and seeing triple!
#6. Here, here!
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 beer and another one.
#7. I’ll Drink To That
As you slide down the banister of life, may the splinters never point in the wrong direction.
