On this page are some pictures of Blarney Castle in Ireland. This castle is the home of the Blarney Stone (Stone of Eloquence). The idea with the stone is that if you kiss it your eloquence is gained.
As far as I am aware, due to health and safety concerns, attempts to kiss the stone are met with the effort to get you to kiss the stone above instead. Such is the modern world!
Will we ever know whether close is close enough?
I can speak.
