A birthday is a time that anyone, irrespective of their age, loves to feel a little more special. Wishes pouring in from near and dear ones add to the joy. These can become monotonous after the first few times. This article provides you an opportunity to be innovative, and add a little Irish flavor to the mix.

The Irish are fun-loving people with a warm heart. They are widely articulate and brilliant at English. They also have the natural ability to gab. Remember these Irish birthday wishes and use them when the opportunity presents itself. You will be glad and appreciated for taking the efforts.
May the doctor never earn a pound of you.
May I see you gray and combing your grandchild's hair.
With happiness being a dessert sweet, may life give you more than you can eat.
You are not as young as you used to be but not as old as you are going to be.
Merry met and merry part, I drink to thee with all my heart.
Let all your joys be pure joys and pain be champagne.
May your health be like capital of Ireland - Always Dublin.
May you live as long as you want and not want as long as you live.
As you slide down the banisters of life, may the splinters never be directed in the wrong way.
In this new year in your life, may your hand be always stretched out in friendship and not once in want.
May you live long, die happy, and rent a mansion in heaven.
Funny Irish Birthday Quotes

May you live to be hundred years and an extra year to repent.
May your coffin be built from a hundred year old oak tree that I shall plant tomorrow.
May the Lord take a liking to you, but not too soon.
May you be an hour in heaven before the devil knows you are dead.
To a long life and a merry one. A quick death and an easy one. A pretty girl and an honest one. A cold beer and another one.
I drink to your health in taverns, I drink to your health in home, I drink to your health so many times, I believe I have ruined my own.
May a mouse never leave your meal bag with a tear in its eye.
May God grant you many years to live, for sure He knows that the Earth has angels far too few, while heaven overflows.
May God not weaken your hand.
May the face of every good news and back of every bad news be towards you.
May your pockets be heavy and heart be light. May good luck pursue you each morning and night.
May you always walk in sunshine. May you never want more for more. May the angels rest their wings right beside your door.
May the Lord keep you in His hand and never close His fist too tight.
May the saddest day in the future be no worse than the happiest day of past.
May the holes in your net be no larger than the fish in it.
May the grass grow long on the road to hell for the want of use.
May the best day of the past be the worst day of your future.
May you have warm words on a cold evening, a full moon on a dark night, and the road downhill all the way to your door.
These sayings will surely give your wishes a great impression. However, be sure not to stretch the joke too far when using the humor quotes. You do not want to end up hurting someone on their birthday.
