Blarney Stone

ImageIn 2002, I had the fortune of finding my way to the Blarney Stone. The stone is in the tower of the Blarney Castle, in Cork, Ireland. It has been there since about 1446. There is a legend surrounding the stone. Anyone who kisses it, the stone endows the kisser with the gift of the gab (great eloquence or skill at flattery). My tour guide told us that President Bill Clinton has kissed it twice. If this fact is true, that explains a lot.
