Lá Fhéile Pádraig sona daoibh go léir
Today in Ireland, we celebrate the feast of St. Patrick, our patron saint. But just like last year, due to Covid, we are still in a national lockdown. The typical celebrations are halted, no pints supped in beer gardens while listening to traditional ballads. (Mel - In the prize pack there is a Guinness Pamphlet with songs from the 70s - and in typical America fashion - apparently NONE of them would ever be heard sung at an actual Irish Celebration!)
Mel - Playlist now available on my Spotify .... apparently lol #TheMoreYouKnow
Agus anois, is beannacht Éireannach é seo.
And now, this is an Irish blessing.
Go n-éirí an bóthar leat
Go raibh an ghaoth go brách ag do chúl
Go lonraí an ghrian go te ar d'aghaidh
Go dtite an bháisteach go mín ar do pháirceanna
Agus go mbuailimid le chéile arís,
Go gcoinní Dia i mbos A láimhe thú.
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 hollow of His hand.
Slan mo chairde agus feicfidh mé sibh go léir Dé Domhnaigh le haghaidh Melanie's Muses beo
Goodbye my friends and I will see you all on Sunday for Melanie's Muses live
