Phrase[edit]

go n-éirí an bóthar leat

  1. bon voyage (addressed to one person)

Usage notes[edit]

  • Literally "May the road [i.e. the journey] be successful for you". Popularly mistranslated as "May the road rise to meet you" due to a confusion of the idiom éirigh le (be successful for) with éirigh (rise).
