Irish Blessing Quotes

There are a lot of Irish Blessing Quotes online.  I thought, in honor of the day, I’d share a few with you. Credit is given to all authors wholly and completely…

May the sun shine, all day long,
everything go right, and nothing wrong.
May those you love bring love back to you,
and may all the wishes you wish come true!

“May God grant you always…

A sunbeam to warm you, a moonbeam to charm you,

a sheltering Angel so nothing can harm you.

Laughter to cheer you. Faithful friends near you.

And whenever you pray, Heaven to hear you.”

“May God give you…

For every storm a rainbow,

for every tear a smile,

for every care a promise

and a blessing in each trial.

For every problem life sends,

a faithful friend to share,

for every sigh a sweet song

and an answer for each prayer.”
