The Irish have blessings, toasts and curses for every occasion: hearing the news of a death or marriage, consoling neighbours in sorrow or sharing their joy, looking for a husband or wife, going off to work, saving turf, or having a drink at the end of the day.

The Irish have blessings, toasts and curses for every occasion: hearing the news of a death or marriage, consoling neighbours in sorrow or sharing their joy, looking for a husband or wife, going off to work, saving turf, or having a drink at the end of the day. Irish Blessings, Toasts and Curses collects the very best of all three to produce this charming, nostalgic volume.

Blessings: 'May you escape the gallows, avoid distress, and be as healthy as a trout.' Toasts: 'May the roof above us never fall in, And may us good companions beneath it, Never fall out.' Curses: 'That you may roast in hell for that and have your gravy sucked by the devil.'
