Irish Toasts

Toasts and Toasting

"May there be a generation of children on the children of your children."

"May your home always be too small to hold all your friends."

"We drink to your coffin. May it be built from the wood of a hundred-year-old oak tree that I shall plan tomorrow."

"May the good Lord take a liking to you - but not too soon!"

"May you be in heaven a full half-hour before the devil knows you're dead."

"May you live as long as you want and never want as long as you live."
