May you die in bed at 95, shot by a jealous spouse.
May the good Lord take a liking to you, but not too soon!
May you live to be 100 years, with one extra year to repent.
May the doctor never earn a pound out of you.
May God grant you many years to live, for sure he must be knowing, the earth has angels all too few and heaven is overflowing…
We drink to your coffin. May it be built from the wood of a hundred year old oak tree that I shall plant tomorrow.
Irish Family & Friends Toasts
May the lilt of Irish laughter lighten every load.
May the mist of Irish magic shorten every road.
There are good ships and there are wood ships, the ships that sail the sea.
But the best ships, are friendships, and may they always be.
And may all your friends remember all the favours you are owed!
May you have warm words on a cold evening, a full moon on a dark night, and a smooth road all the way to your door.
May the hinges of our friendship never grow rusty.
I have known many and liked not a few.
But loved only one and this toast is to you.
