Go n-éirí an bóthar leat.
Go raibh an chóir ghaoithe i gcónaí leat.
Go dtaitní an ghrian go bog bláth ar do chlár éadai
n,
go gcuire an bháisteach go bog mín ar do ghoirt.
Agus go gcasfar le chéile sinn arís,
go gcoinní Dia i mbosa a láimhe thú.

May the road rise up to meet you,
may the winds be always at your back,
may the sun shine warm upon your face, until we meet again.

May the rain fall soft upon your fields,
and until we meet again,
may God hold you in the palm of His hand.
