May your right hand always Be stretched out in friendship And never in want.

Better be sparing at first than at last.

Beannachtam na Femle Padraig ("Happy St. Patrick's Day!")

On me tod: A lonely lad says, "I'm on me tod," if he's riding solo at the bars that night, or alone in general. Tod Sloan was an American jockey whose mother died when he was young, whose father abandoned him, and whose incredibly successful horse-racing career came to an end when he moved to the U.K. and was ridiculed for his Western riding style. Sloan was always said to be "on his own.". This expression is one of the best-known examples of Cockney rhyming slang, a phrase construction that involves taking a common word and using a rhyming phrase of two or three words to replace it. "On my Tod Sloan" rhymes with "on my own"; but in typical Cockney fashion, the word that completes the rhyme ("Sloan") is omitted.

The problem with Ireland is that it's a country full of genius, but with absolutely no talent.

You'll not find a thrush in a hawk's nest.

A light heart lives long.

I wish you health, I wish you well, and happiness galore. I wish you luck for you and friends; what could I wish you more? May your joys be as deep as the oceans, your troubles as light as its foam. And may you find, sweet peace of mind, where ever you may roam.

May the luck of the Irish Lead to happiest heights And the highway you travel Be lined with green lights.
