Slainte 2020

Slainte 2020

Explaining Ireland’s most famous toast, “Sláinte”, just in time for St. Patrick’s Day!

St. Patrick’s Day is just around the bend & it’s likely you’ll encounter a few ‘Sláinte’ toasts.

But do you know what sláinte means?

Translating to ‘Good Health’ in English, sláinte [SLAHN-chə] is an Irish expression that derives from the Old Irish word slán, meaning “healthy” or “safe”.

So here is this week’s fresh Gravy…and why not?

Slainte!

IRISHMEN

(Please read with a terribly fake Irish accent.)

Top of the mornin’.

My name is Patrick.

I am a leprechaun by birth and an ad man by trade. You give me an idea and I will turn it into a pot o’ gold.

I like me whiskey and I am rather fond of the lasses.

Some of me colleagues are into their three martini lunches & whatnot. (I guess whatever shakes your shamrocks.)

I’ve nothing much to say so I shall leave you with this…

My pockets are heavy, my heart is light, good luck has followed me each morning and night.

Or some shit like that.

Anyway,

Erin go Bragh, Bra.

And for the love of Pete, could you keep it down? I’m trying to drink.
