Slainte Meaning & Erin Go Bragh English Translation?

Among the most common words used during St. Patrick's Day are Slainte to Erin Go Bragh.
What is the meaning of the word Slainte? And what is the translation of the phrase Erin Go Bragh?
I noticed many of my friends published these words on their facebook pages and I would like to know what they mean.
Are they related to health in some way?

Both Slainte and Erin Go Bragh mean different things.

Slainte is a word that means 'good health,' Slainte is the Gaelic word for health.
To pronounce it, you say something like slawnt-yeh.
Erin go Bragh is a phrase that means in Gaelic "Ireland forever."
The pronunciation is Erin(air-inn) Go(guh) Bragh(braw.)
