Toasts to the Irish

Traditional Toasts to Love, Happiness, Health and Drink

By

To Friendship:

"May the lilt of Irish laughter
lighten every load.
May the mist of Irish magic
shorten every road...
And may all your friends remember
all the favours you are owed!"

To Friendship:

"My friends are the best friends
Loyal, willing and able.
Now let’s get to drinking!
All glasses off the table!"

To Friendship:

"Here’s to you and yours,
And to mine and ours,
And if mine and ours ever come
Across you and yours,
I hope you and yours will do
As much for mine and ours,
As mine and ours have done
For you and yours!"

To Happiness:

"May your heart be light and happy,
May your smile be big and wide,
And may your pockets always have
a coin or two inside!"

To Happiness:

"Health and long life to you.
The wife of your choice to you.
A child every year to you,
And life without rent to you
And may you be half an hour in heaven
Before the devil knows your dead."

To Happiness:

"Dance as if no one were watching,
Sing as if no one were listening,
And live every day as if it were your last."

To Happiness:

"Always remember to forget
The things that made you sad.
But never forget to remember
The things that made you glad."

To Happiness:

"May the saddest day of your future be no worse
Than the happiest day of your past."

To Happiness:

"May you have warm words on a cold evening,
A full moon on a dark night,
And the road downhill all the way to your door."

To Happiness:

"It is better to spend money like there's no tomorrow
than to spend tonight like there's no money!"
