St Patrick's Day Toasts


Saint Patrick was a gentleman
Who through strategy and stealth
Drove all the snakes from Ireland
Here’s a drinkee to his health!
But not too many drinkees
Lest we lose ourselves and then…
Forget the good Saint Patrick
And see them snakes again!



"There are many good reasons for drinking,
One has just entered my head.
If a man doesn’t drink when he’s living,
How in the hell can he drink when he’s dead?"


"May you die in bed at ninety-five years, shot by a jealous husband (or wife)"


"It is better to spend money like there’s no tomorrow than to spend tonight like there’s no money!"



"May the lilt of Irish laughter
Lighten every load.
May the mist of Irish magic
Shorten every road…
And may all your friends remember
All the favours you are owed!"


"Here's to a long life and a merry one
A quick death and an easy one
A pretty girl and an honest one
A cold beer – and another one"

"St Patrick-one of the few saints whose feast day presents the opportunity to get determinedly whacked and make a food of oneself all under the guise of acting Irish"


“May the luck of the Irish
Lead to happiest heights
And the highway you travel
Be lined with green lights.
Wherever you go and whatever you do,
May the luck of the Irish be there with you.”



“May you have all the happiness
And luck that life can hold-
And at the end of all your rainbows
May you find a pot of gold.”


“May the winds of fortune sail you,
May you sail a gentle sea.
May it always be the other guy
Who says, ‘this drink’s on me.”



“May you always have a clean shirt, a clear conscience, and enough coins in your pocket to buy a pint!”


“Here’s to the land of the shamrock so green
Here’s to each lad and his darling colleen
Here’s to the ones we love dearest and most
May God bless old Ireland, that’s this Irishman’s toast!”


“May your heart be light and happy
May your smile be big and wide
And may your pockets always have
A coin or two inside!”



“My friends are the best friends
Loyal, willing and able
Now let’s get to drinking
All glasses off the table!”


“May you have warm words on a cold evening
A full moon on a dark night
And the road all the way to your door be downhill”




“When money’s tight and hard to get
And your horse is also ran,
When all you have is a heap of debt,
A pint of plain is your only man.”



“Here’s to being single…
Drinking doubles…..
And seeing triple!”


“Here’s to women’s kisses
And to whiskey amber clear;
Not as sweet as a woman’s kiss
But a darn sight more sincere!”



“I drink to your health when I’m with you
I drink to your health when I’m alone
I drink to your health so often
I’m starting to worry about my own!”

  Have the best St Patrick's Day!
