An Irish Blessing

May the road rise to meet you
May the wind be always at your back
May the sun shine warm upon your face
May the rains fall soft upon your fields
And until we meet again
May God hold you in the palm of His hand

The fields of Athenry

"The fields of Athenry" song tells a sad story of our past - a past now far behind us. Time has proved that poverty was no barrier to respectability and certainly no hinderence to progress, it is equally true to say that wealth is not a guarantee of integrity; from the poorest have come the finest of people.
