The poem is said to have inspired the likes of former South African president Nelson Mandela and others.

Tybre Faw, May the road rise up to meet you. May the wind be always at your back. May the sun shine warm upon your face; May the rains fall soft upon your fields, May God hold you in the palm of His hand. - Irish blessing
