I’m completely fascinated with all things Irish, so I love Irish sayings, blessings and proverbs. If I had them framed and hanging all over my house, I’d be a happy girl indeed.
And if I could speak with an Irish brogue, my life would be complete.
In the spirit of St. Patrick’s Day, I put together some of those Irish sayings, blessings and proverbs so you can recite a few of them to your loved ones and friends to catch them off guard and spread a little holiday cheer.
