...I've heard numerous reports, all the same, that locals go up to the top of the castle at night and pee on the stone. Oh well....it was just one kiss. Just one kiss won't kill anyone. So I did it. I kissed it. There was a little old man at the top...and he had a job. His job, for the entire day, was to hold people over the edge of the castle and stretch them out far enough to kiss the stone. I'll say it was an adrenaline rush, but with some Irishman's hands on you...it was a little sketchy...oh well. Those Irishmen were great.
Today we also met a man named Seamus (in the gardens next to the castle) and an Emmett. Pretty awesome. They had trees...old, Tree of Life looking trees. We climbed them, got scraped, got pictures. There were elephant leaves, wishing steps, rain, and many souvenirs in the shape of the stone.
The Blarney Castle was fun....on to Kilarney! :)
