The beginning and end of one's life is to draw closer to the fire.

He'd offer you an egg if you promised not to break the shell.

May the leprechauns dance over your bed and bring you sweet dreams.

May you have food and raiment, A soft pillow for your head, May you be forty years in heaven Before the devil knows you're dead.

Here's that we may always have A clean shirt A clean conscience And a punt in our pocket. Will you be the lucky one to find a coin in your slice of barmbrack? Will you be the lucky one to find a coin in your slice of barmbrack?

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.

I'm troubled, I'm dissatisfied. I'm Irish.

May you have length with your days, and strength with your step, and may each season have a reason to celebrate your faith in mankind!

Youth does not mind where it sets its foot.
