Luck of the Irish Toast - "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. If you’re enough lucky to be Irish, you’re lucky enough!  May your pockets be heavy and your heart be light, and may good luck pursue you each morning and night." - Cheers!
