This Christmas, as you gather with friends and family, may you be blessed by love and life, happiness and heritage.
To celebrate our Irish heritage and culture for this festive season, here's a beautiful old Irish Christmas blessing.
The light of the Christmas star to you,
The warmth of home and hearth to you.
The cheer and good will of friends to you.
The hope of a childlike heart to you.
The joy of a thousand angels to you.
The love of the Son and God's peace to you.
Have a wonderful Christmas everyone. Thank you all for your amazing support and for reading my ramblings over the past year. The blessings of Christmas be with you and yours.
Slán agus beannacht,
(Goodbye and blessings)
