Saint Patrick was a gentleman, who through strategy and stealth
Drove all the snakes from Ireland, here’s a drink to his health!
But not too many drinks, lest we lose ourselves and then
Forget the good Saint Patrick, and see them snakes again!
- Never iron a four-leaf clover, because you don’t want to press your luck.
- What do you get when you cross poison ivy with a four-leaf clover? A rash of good luck.
- A best friend is like a four leaf clover: hard to find and lucky to have.
I always pass on good advice. It is the only thing I ever do with it. It is never of any use to oneself. – Oscar Wilde
Ireland is a peculiar society in the sense that it was a nineteenth century society up to about 1970 and then it almost bypassed the twentieth century. – John McGahern
When law can stop the blades of grass from growin’ as they grow,
An’ when the leaves in summer time their color dare not show,
Then I will change the color, too, I wear in my caubeen;
But till that day, praise God, I’ll stick to the Wearin’ o’ the Green.
These things I warmly wish for you: Someone to love, some work to do,
A bit o’ sun, a bit o’ cheer,
And a guardian angel always near.
– Irish Blessing
