Hello,

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:

Season's Greetings
Peace on Earth, Goodwill to Men
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year
Best Wishes at Christmas
Christmas Blessings

... or anything else that may be suitable.

Any help you can provide will be much appreciated in my calligraphy class !

Regards
Anne

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!
Happy Christmas!

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)

Agus (and)

Go mbeire muid beo ar an am seo arís.
May we be alive at this time next year
