“The Lord bless you and keep you;

And be gracious to you;
26 The Lord lift up His countenance upon you,
And give you peace.

 

Fun Irish sayings for your St. Patty’s day

  1. “Happy out” : means “happy,” but for some reason we feel the need to add “out.” It’s usually used in the present, so basically while you’re in the process of having a whale of a time, you’re happy out. In use: “Look at you there, happy out leaping about the place.”
  2. May the luck of the Irish be with you!
  3. If you want praise, die. If you want blame, marry.
  4.  May you have the hindsight to know where you’ve been, the foresight to know where you are going, and the insight to know when you have gone too far.
  5.  A man may live after losing his life but not after losing his honour.
  6.  “All the world’s a stage and most of us are desperately unrehearsed.” – Sean O’Casey
  7.  You’ve got to do your own growing, no matter how tall your father was.
  8.  It is often that a person’s mouth broke his nose.
  9. May the Good Lord take a liking to you, … but not too soon!
  10. As you slide down the banister of life, May the splinters never point the wrong way.
  11. Stop acting a maggot : obnoxious? Acting the maggot. Phone taking forever to deliver an iMessage? Acting the maggot. Comparing someone or something to a wriggly little white worm means they’re behaving like a fool.
  12.  Crack on : Continue on, Get going, I must crack on, lots to do
  13. Donkey’s years : For a very long time, They have lived there for donkey’s years!
  14. Dosser : Someone up to no good, They are a couple of dossers
  15. Knackered: tired, I was completely knackered
  16. Nixer: Job done for cash, avoid tax.. He can do it as a nixer for you
  17. Not the full shilling. Not fully sane. I don’t think he is the full shilling
