Sláinte or slàinte (SLAHN-chə) is a word literally translating as "health"[1] and is commonly used as a drinking toast in Ireland.

Ogham /ˈɒɡəm/[1] (Modern Irish [ˈoːm] or [ˈoːəm]; Old Irish: ogam [ˈɔɣam]) is an Early Medieval alphabet used primarily to write the early Irish language (in the so-called "orthodox" inscriptions, 4th to 6th centuries), and later the Old Irish language (so-called scholastic ogham, 6th to 9th centuries). There are roughly 400 surviving orthodox inscriptions on stone monuments throughout Ireland and western Britain; the bulk of them are in the south of Ireland, in Counties Kerry, Cork and Waterford.[2] The largest number outside of Ireland is in Pembrokeshire in Wales.[
