Island Ireland: Irish Toasts

“A bird with one wing can’t fly,” said to encourage someone to take a second drink.

“It is better to spend money like there’s no tomorrow, than to spend tonight like there’s no money!”

“That the tap may be open when it rusts!”

My friends are the best friends
Loyal, willing and able.
Now let’s get to drinking!
All glasses off the table!
Here’s to a long life and a merry.
