On St. Patrick’s Day…we all have a little Irish in us!
Go raibh míle maith agat!
An Irish blessing is used in its original Gaelic often in Ireland – one of the few expressions that almost everybody knows. The meaning is – ‘Many thanks' – literally ‘That you may have a thousand good things' and is pronounced Guh rev mee-lah maw og-ut.
