Native or diaspora, Irish is Irish, providing you take a genuine interest in that Irish bloodline and are aware of and appreciate how much Irish blood has been spilled for your right to call yourself Irish.
Irish Blessing: May the raindrops fall lightly on your brow. May the soft winds freshen your spirit. May the sunshine brighten your heart. May the burdens of the day rest lightly upon you. And may God enfold you in the mantle of His love.
