Irish Toasts

This is taken from Routledge's Manual of Etiquette, with some editing.]


To Ould Ireland, Erin, the land of the brave and the bold.

Ireland; sympathy for her wrongs, and a determination to redress them.

The country that gave St. Patrick birth, the birthplace of wit, and hospitality’s home—dear Ould Ireland.

May Ireland be ever equally distinguished by its love of liberty and true patriotism.

May the enemies of Ireland never meet a friend in any country.

Justice for Ireland!

If Saint Patrick did not tear the leaves from the shamrock, then why should any lesser man divide Ireland?
