Blarney Castle in Ireland was one of those fortifications originally built in wood of which nothing remains. Built initially in the 1100s it soon succumbed to western Europe's importation of gun powder from China, which powder the locals quickly learned to stuff down an iron barrel, roll a rounded stone and later an iron ball down the barrel, light the powder in the barrel, and blow all wooden fortifications to smithereens. ...

The stone itself was built into the tower ...

... pubs in the town and we of course had some fish and chips and a few pints.
The next day we made our way to Blarney Castle and Stone. The grounds of the castle were beautiful, something out of a fairytale. It had the greenest grass (greener than England) and little creeks with clear water. First we climbed up Blarney Castle which had the steepest steps, we kept joking that this would never be in America out of fear for someone suing them. We walked ...
