St Patrick’s Day Essentials: Irish Curses…and an Irish Blessing

Wow! I’ve heard of Irish Blessings but I decided to Google ‘Irish curses‘ and found some delightfully devilish oaths. Check these out:

  • May you find the bees but not the honey!bees
  • May you be afflicted with the itch but have no nails to scratch with!
  • May you go to hell and not have a drop of porter to quench your eternal thirst!
  • May the devil make a fool of you!
  • Dysentery on you!
  • If you eat, that you may not shit!
  • May you have the runs on your wedding night!
  • May the curse of Mary Malone and her nine blind illegitimate children chase you so far over the Hills of Damnation that the Lord himself can’t find you with a telescope!

All righty then! Here’s an Irish blessing to reverse those curses:

May your blessings out number the shamrocks that grow and may trouble avoid you wherever you go.

Whoa! What’s the best curse you’ve ever heard?
