“May the Irish hills caress you. May her lakes and rivers bless you…” (Irish blessing)

A popular St. Patrick’s Day blessing is:

“May the Irish hills caress you.
May her lakes and rivers bless you.
May the luck of the Irish enfold you.
May the blessings of St. Patrick behold you.”


The Irish blessing was printed in the Miami (FL) Herald on March 12, 1982, and is of unknown authorship.
