The text reads: "There's never a smile in Ireland where a smile is not returned, and never a village where some old sweet wisdom is not learned. There's never a church that is empty nor a cottage lacking laughter, and never a meal that hasn't got some good songs to follow after. The poorest folk all look happy, and the rich aren't high and mighty. The old folk are blessed with young manners, and the young are never flighty. The Irish tunes mix tears and joy, heartbreaking yet absurd, and the brogue is at its richest, and the softest ever hear. The landscape always calls one back, though years may intervene. Oh, what would I not give to see that land of sunny green."
A personalized message can also be included at no extra cost, and will appear underneath the original text. Please note that we may have to resize or reformat the text to accommodate your personal message. We make every attempt to format the text so that is as visually appealing as possible. You may send us a message to request a draft image of the personalization before we ship it out.
The font we use is called “Tolkien”, we use this font as it most resembles traditional Celtic/Gaelic handwriting. If you have any special requests regarding font, size, or formatting, please send a message after ordering and we will be more than happy to accommodate you.
