Gaelic Blessings

Hello all. I have been doing some research, and I have found some more Irish blessings and sayings. In fact I have found so many good things, I had to split this page up. By the end of the day, this page will have Irish blessings and another page will have Irish sayings and proverbs. Make sure you come back to visit. This stuff is great fun. Please sign the guess book or drop me an email. I would really like to hear from some of my visitors!

A Wish for a Friend

Wishing you a rainbow
For sunlight after showers—
Miles and miles of Irish smiles
For golden happy hours—
Shamrocks at your doorway
For luck and laughter too,
And a host of friends that never ends
Each day your whole life through!

 

May your blessings out number
The Shamrocks that grow
And may trouble avoid you
Wherever you go.

 

May your troubles be less
And your blessing be more
And nothing but happiness
Come through your door.

A Gaelic Christening Blessing


Dearest Father in Heaven,
Bless this child and bless this day
Of new beginnings.
Smile upon this child
And surround this child, Lord,
With the soft mantle of your love.
Teach this child to follow in your footsteps,
And to live life in the ways of
Love, faith, hope and charity.

May you be poor in misfortunes
and rich in blessings.
May you know nothing but happiness
from this day forward.

 

May good luck be your friend
In whatever you do
And may trouble be always
A stranger to you.

May the blessing of the rain be on you—
the soft sweet rain.
May it fall upon your spirit
so that all the little flowers may spring up,
and shed their sweetness on the air.
May the blessing of the great rains be on you,
may they beat upon your spirit
and wash it fair and clean,
and leave there many a shining pool
where the blue of heaven shines,
and sometimes a star.

shamrocks

Lucky stars above you,
Sunshine on your way,
Many friends to love you,
Joy in work and play-
Laughter to outweigh each care,
In your heart a song-
And gladness waiting everywhere
All your whole life long.

 

May the roads rise to meet you.
May the wind be at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face;
The rain fall soft upon your fields
And, until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.
A GAELIC BLESSING

 

shampot

You've blessed me with friends and laughter and fun
With rain that’s as soft as the light from the sun-
You’ve blessed me with the stars to brighten each night
You’ve give me help to know wrong from right
You’ve give me so much please, Lord give me too
A heart that is always grateful to you.

May the frost never afflict your spuds.
May the leaves of your cabbage always be free from worms.
May the crows never pick your haystack.
If you inherit a donkey, may she be in foal.

 

May the blessings of each day
Be the blessings you need most.

 

sham-hat

Whenever there is happiness
Hope you’ll be there too,
Wherever there are friendly smiles
Hope they’ll smile on you,
Whenever there is sunshine,
Hope it shine especially
For you to make each day for you
As bright as it can be.  

If God sends you
down a stony path,
may he give you strong shoes

May the light of heaven
shine on your grave.

pot

May the roads rise to meet you.
May the wind be at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face;
The rain fall soft upon your fields
And, until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.
A GAELIC BLESSING

May your right hand always
Be stretched out in friendship
And never in want

May evening find you gracious and fulfilled.
May you go into the night blessed, sheltered, and protected.
May your soul calm, console, and renew you.

pretty

Lucky stars above you,
Sunshine on your way,
Many friends to love you,
Joy in work and play-
Laughter to outweigh each care,
In your heart a song-
And gladness waiting everywhere
All your whole life long.

May you be buried in a
casket made from the wood
of a 100 year old oak
That I shall plant tomorrow.

May dawn find you awake and alert,
approaching your new day with dreams,
possibilities, and promises

May the frost never afflict your spuds.
May the leaves of your cabbage always be free from worms. May the crows never pick your haystack.
If you inherit a donkey, may she be in foal.

May your pockets be heavy
and your heart be light,

May good luck pursue you
each morning and night

May you live as long as you want,
And never want as long as you live.
