Never have I heard an Irish person utter this blessing. Mind you, I've never had an Irish person bless me:)

The Tin Pan Alley songs are easy to identify, and are usually only sung by bad bar bands anyway, or at least bar bands that want to keep the drunks from shouting out requests. Some of them are also old music hall songs -- I've always suspected Patrick Fagan to be such and would be interested if someone would confirm my opinion.

Good question, Tim. A lot of what we think of as "Irish" music came from Tin Pan Alley - why not the blessing, too? I've never actually heard a real Irish person speak of the Irish Blessing. Alison, you got an answer to that one?

A lot of times you see that list Irish blessings without the best line, the last "And may you be in heaven a half an hour before the Devil knows you're dead."

Are all the blessings recited actually all Irish blessings?

Noel Paul Stookey of Peter, Paul & Mary did a very nice rendition of the "Irish Blessing" on his 1977 album, "Real to Reel." There has been talk of reissuing some of the solo stuff PP&M did in the 1970's, but nothing has come of it but talk so far.

Yup someone in New Hampshire has printed it on the back of T-shirts with musical notation with a copyright stamp. Barry

Hello, I have put music to the traditional Irish blessing that begins "May the road rise up to meet you. May the wind be always at your back." I am just curious if anyone else has ever done this. Thanks for any information.

I'm looking for information on Irish allegorical songs, particularly sources and history for Dark Rosaleen or Roisin Dubh. Any ideas? Writing about this for Master's thesis. Thanks.
