The Irish Blessing

The Irish Blessing tends to refer to a specific blessing that may be used in a toast at weddings or gatherings.  However, this Irish blessing is simply the most well known blessing.  The Irish are actually quite famous for a number of blessings and curses, so the term Irish Blessing is something of a misnomer.  This Irish Blessing is often attributed to St. Patrick, but that is likely confusion between the Irish Blessing and a much longer prayer called the "Breastplate of St. Patrick."  The author is unknown, and even dating the Irish Blessing is difficult.  Scored with the option to play with the band arrangement.
