Irish Heritage

Author: Brenda Leyndyke / Labels:


May the road rise
up to meet you,
may the wind be
always at your back.
May the sun shine
warm on your face,
the rain fall soft
upon your fields and,
until we meet again,
may God hold you in
the palm of His hand.

I thought I would share this Irish Blessing with my readers on this St. Patrick's Day.  A couple of years ago, Kirk and I bought a decorative plate for his mother.  This blessing was on it.  It has always been a favorite of Kirk's.  

Kirk's Irish Heritage comes from his maternal grandmother's side of the family, Corcoran.  I have not traced his Corcoran lineage to a county of origin, yet.

Happy St. Patrick's Day

Back as far as I got William Dolloway b. 2 May 1719 Ireland died in 1799 New York. So this saying fits right in.
