Erin Go Bragh

Does this look like a guy who'd drink green beer?

OK, because I am a lazy lout...here it is, right out of wikipedia...which, of course you could have cut and pasted on your brain, yourself...apropos of the day the following is offered:

Erin Go Bragh (also sometimes: Erin Go Braugh) is the Anglicization of a Gaelic phrase used to express allegiance to Ireland. It is most often translated as "Ireland Forever",[1] and pronounced /ˌɛrɪn gə ˈbrɔː/.


(insert your name) go bragh! May there be no snakes in your life.

I got to the pronounciation part and thought "wha?!" I imagine my hubby could say it. He knows a lot of gaelic.
Happy St Paddy's Day!
