      ... intact. It was interesting to read the signs about the different rooms and what they may have been used for. The kids were up to the top in no time with Keely kissing several other stones before discovering where the real Blarney Stone was located. It's actually a piece of the wall on the outermost battlement and you have to lay on your back and lean backwards and downwards to reach it.

Local cheeses and sausages, butter with all sorts of herbs and spices added, rape seed oil with all sorts of things added, cakes, biscuits and sweets, and probably best of all a locally made Irish Cream liqueur, similar to Baileys only better because my humans could get to taste it, free:

      ... on luxury goods. It finished in 1851 when big taxes were brought in and only started again in 1947 when immigrants from Czechoslovakia started it off again. We're all amazed at the lack of workplace, health and safety all over he British Isles and in the Waterford factory the glass blowers weren't wearing gloves or eye protection working with molten crystal. There was eye protection for the crystal cutters but no masks for the dust, bearing in mind it is lead dust, or protection over driving ...
