Icon101 An Irish Friendship Wish (Updated)

I got an updated version of the "Irish Friendship" email forward today. Note: Schmaltzy graphics and weird formatting removed.
Quote:
Fwd: Fw: Fwd: Fw: Fwd: I want this back.....apparently it works
I have always likes the Irish...why not try it....love & hugs

When you reach the end of your rope,....
You will find the hem of
His garment '
Scroll down.


This may just set the record for return emails and forwards. Leave it up to the Irish to come up with the answer to all our wishes. Well, at least one.

Make sure you follow the directions carefully. I think we all need a little luck right about now.

Hope the Leprechaun dances his jig for you!

Comments from others:

I had to forward this, my mom swears it works. The day after she sent it, they got an offer on their land on the Swannee river, they haven't even seen that land since 1987. It came out of the blue. So you know that I'm going to try it.
Love Kim

Not sure if this had anything to do with it but it was shortly after I sent this out - I got a call to say our bond was approved - against all odds.

I don't know if it works but I won a new fridge full of various cool drinks from Beyer and Beyer last week.

I do not know if it works, but I won a microwave yesterday Seems like it Hey !!

I hope this works my son could use a really good job!!!!!!!

Good luck to everyone! And may all your dreams come true!!

This may sound nuts, but my husband got this the other day and sent it off. About 10 minutes later a really good financial windfall happened for his son Sean who he had sent it too as well. One of the people he sent it to was responsible for the windfall.

AN IRISH FRIENDSHIP WISH

Good Luck!!

I hope it works..

May there always be work for your hands to do;

May your purse always hold a coin or two;

May the sun always shine on your windowpane;

May a rainbow be certain to follow each rain;

May the hand of a friend always be near you;
May God fill your heart with gladness to cheer you..


OK, this is what you have to do...Send this to all of your friends!
But - you HAVE to send this within 1 hour

From when you open it!

Now.................Make A wish!!!!!!

I hope you made your wish! Now then, if you send to:

1 person --- your wish will be granted in 1 year

3 people --- 6 months

5 people --- 3 months

6 people --- 1 month

7 people --- 2 weeks

8 people --- 1 week

9 people --- 5 days

10 people --- 3 days

12 people - -- 2 days

15 people --- 1 day

20 people --- 3 hours

If you delete this after you read it . You will have 1 year of bad luck! But .. If you send it to 2 of your friends you will automatically have 3 years of good luck!!! )

BrianB, at this moment, there are 2735 registered snopsters. Since you sent this to all of us, that must mean that your wish was granted in - just a moment - calculating - take the 2 - that would be... 3.46857 nanoseconds.

Did it work?

So if you send it to 2 people, you get 3 year of good luck and your wish granted in less than a year?

or is the good luck for 3 years only if you delete it and THEN send it to 2 people?
