To charm and bewilder as this we are quaffing.
The magic began when in Autumn's rich hour
As a harvest of gold in the field it stood laughing.
There having by nature's enchantment been filled
With the balm and the boon of the kindest weather,
The wonderful juice from its core was distilled
To enliven such hearts as we have here brought together"
Thomas Moore

Land without rent to you,
A child every year to you,
And may you die in Ireland"

May the sun be always on your back,
And may you be in heaven half an hour,
Before the devil knows your dead."
