There’s no blarney in this wish!

Aunt Lucy sent Irish wishes to some loved one with this 1949 St. Patrick’s Day greeting card. The inside of this card shows a boy and a girl holding a shamrock with the following words on the next panel: “To wish you worlds o’ Irish luck An’ lots o’ Irish cheer Not only on St. Patrick’s Day But all throughout the year.”

This greeting card is part of the collection of the Vigo County Historical Society at 1411 S. 6th Street, Terre Haute, Ind. To view this card more closely, click here.

To get you in the mood for the St. Paddy’s, take to heart this Irish blessing:

“May the Irish hills caress you.
May her lakes and rivers bless you.
May the luck of the Irish enfold you.
May the blessings of Saint Patrick behold you.
