Here’s how to say it:
Lá Fhéile Pádraig Sona Duit!
It’s pronounced ‘Law Ale-yeh Pawd-rig Sunna Ditch!’
If just one Irish phrase isn’t enough, here are a few more you can try out in the pub.
Pionta Guinness, le do thoil (Pyun-tah Guinness, leh duh hul)
Kiss me, I’m Irish
Tabhair pog dom, is Eireannach me (Tow-ir powg dum, iss Aye-ron-okh may)
Are you drunk yet?
An bhfuil tu ar meisce go foill (On will too err mesh-ka guh foal)
Health and wealth!
Slainte is tainte (Sloyne-che iss toyne-cheh)
Eire go brach (Ayr-eh guh brawkh)
