To celebrate Saint Patrick’s Day Weekend, I am rerunning some of my favorite posts about one of my favorite Places: Ireland. Hope you enjoy them. GG.

“May the Irish hills caress you, May her lakes and rivers bless you, may the luck of the Irish enfold you,  may the blessings of Saint Patrick behold you”
“No! No land doth rank above thee, or for loveliness or worth,  So shall I from this day forth  Ever sing and love thee”  James Clarence Mangum Irish Poet (1803-1849)


“The pillar towers of Ireland, how wondrously they stand, lakes and rushing rivers through the valleys of our land. In mystic file, through the emerald isle, they lift their heads sublime. These gray old pillar temples, the conquerors of time.”  Denis McCarthy Irish Poet (1817-1882)

Ireland, Where the wind has a sound like a sweet song And anyone one can hum it. and heather grows upon the cliffs and shamrocks not far from it.”
“May the Good Lord take a liking to you…But not too soon.”
“Deep Peace of the running waves to you, Deep Peace of the flowing air to you, Deep Peace of the Smiling Stars to you, Deep Peace of the Quiet Earth to you, Deep Peace of the Setting Sun to you, Deep Peace of the Prince of Peace to you.” Gaelic Prayer
“May you always have a clean shirt, a clear conscience, and enough coins in your pocket to buy a pint!”
“May you always walk in sunshine, May you never want for more, May Irish Angels rest their wings, right beside your door.”  Traditional Irish Blessing
