According to Irish tradition, those who kiss the Blarney Stone will be blessed with the gift of eloquence - aka "the gift of gab". The Blarney Stone is set in the wall of Blarney Castle, located in Blarney, a small village in southern Ireland. Visitors must climb over 100 stairs and wait in line to see the Blarney stone. To kiss the stone, they must lie on their backs, lean back and downward, while holding onto a pair of iron rails for support. This may sound like a lot of blarney, but the historic castle and legendary stone draws over 200,000 tourists a year!

Irish Blessings

Like the warmth of the sun,
And the light of the day,
May the luck of the Irish,
Shine bright on your way.

May your blessings outnumber
The shamrocks that grow,
And may trouble avoid you
Wherever you go.

May your neighbors respect you,
Troubles neglect you,
The angels protect you,
And Heaven accept you.

May your troubles be less
and your blessings be more
And nothing but happiness
come through your door.
