May You Have a Thousand Good Things
Go raibh míle maith agat - - Thank you very much.
The literal translation of this most common phrase is interesting
and little known. Remember Tá ... agat means you have.
This phrase means "May you have a thousand good things [kindnesses]"
Glendalough gets its name from the Irish language.Gleann dá locha literally means the ‘Glen of the two lakes.' It was founded in the 6th century by Saint Kevin, a hermitpriest, and destroyed in 1398 by English troops. The location was sought out as a peaceful retreat by Saint Kevin because of its remoteness and serenity, but several men who wished to follow his teachings built a temporary place of churches and living quarters in the valley below the site of his house. This soon grew and became an important school. The remains of the monastery are located beside the Lower Lake and the Upper Lake.
Any day you wake up is a good one!
