Irish Blessings…

Carnival of Irish Genealogy, 19th Edition

May 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.


Now sweetly lies old Ireland

Emerald green beyond the foam,

Awakening sweet memories,

Calling the heart back home.


Ireland, it’s the one place on earth

That heaven has kissed

With melody, mirth, 

And meadow and mist.


Wherever you go and whatever you do,

May the luck of the Irish be there with you.


May your heart be warm and happy

With the lilt of Irish laughter

Every day in every way

And forever and ever after.


May the luck of the Irish possess you.

May the devil fly off your worries.

May God bless you forever and ever.


Bless your little Irish heart-

and every other Irish part.


May the road rise to meet you, 

May the wind be always at you back.

May the sun shine upon your face,

And the rains fall soft upon your fields.

And until we meet again,

May God hold you in the palm of His hand.
