I'm sure someone out there can help me ! I am looking for the Irish language version of some traditional Christmas/New Year greetings. I'd especially like to know how to write:
Peace on Earth, Goodwill to Men
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year
Best Wishes at Christmas
... or anything else that may be suitable.
Any help you can provide will be much appreciated in my calligraphy class !

Here are a few greeeting that are used. If you need any specific other one please reply
Bíodh Nollaig mhaith agaibh agus Beannacht Dé oraibh i gcónaí.
Happy Christmas and may the blessing of God be with you forever.
Nollaig shona duit!
Nollaig faoi shéan is faoi shonas duit.
A prosperous and happy Christmas to you.
Athbhliain faoi mhaise duit!
A prosperous New Year!
(nearly always followed by a very common Irish phrase –used at birthdays anniversaries etc)
Go mbeire muid beo ar an am seo arís.
May we be alive at this time next year
