Help with Irish saying

Would someone be so kind as to write the Irish saying about a journey "and may the road come up to meet you" - in the original Irish dialect, please. Thank you, Carol

    Go n-éirí an bóthar leat.
    Go raibh an chóir ghaoithe i gcónaí leat.
    Go dtaitní an ghrian go bog bláth ar do chlár éadain,
    go gcuire an bháisteach go bog mín ar do ghoirt.
    Agus go gcasfar le chéile sinn arís,
    go gcoinní Dia i mbosa a láimhe thú.

    no clue as to how to say this but try here

    don't know whether you ever got a reply to your request but this is it below:

    'Go n'eiri an bothar leat'. Literally, it means 'may the road rise with you'.
