Go bhfana í ngrá linn - May those who love us...

Sláinte Gaelach - An Irish Toast.

Lloyd Bridges says these lines in a conversation at an Irish Pub in Boston in the movie "Blown Away". My own translation of these into the Irish is below the English. The film, an action thriller, also starred Lloyd's son Beau Bridges.

May those who love us,
Love us.
And those who do not love us,
May God turn their hearts.
And if He doesn't turn their hearts,
May He turn their ankles,
So we'll know them by their limping.

Go bhfana í ngrá linn,
Iad siúd atá í ngrá linn.
Iad siúd nach bhfuil,
Go gcasa Dia a gcroíthe.
Agus muna gcasann Sé a gcroíthe
Go gcasa Sé caol na coise acu
Go n-aithneoimid iad as a mbacadaíl.
