Eirinn go Brach is Celtic for “Ireland forever.”
Tipperary is a village western Ireland made famous by a World War I song, “It’s a Long Way to Tipperary.” I traveled a long way in 1997 and was tickled to see this sign.
Happy St. Patrick’s Day to all who are Irish…and to St. Patrick’s Day Irish wannabes. And here’s a classic Irish blessing:
“May the road rise to meet you,
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
The rains fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of his hand.”
