No, "Erin go Bragh" is not synonymous with "kiss me, I'm Irish."

The popular phrase, uttered frequently on St. Patrick's Day, is an expression that means "Ireland forever," according to the Merriam-Webster online dictionary.

So go ahead and say "Erin go Bragh" today -- the family-friendly line won't get you in trouble.

Although your friends will probably still pinch you for not wearing green.
