Ireland Old ART Postcard A Pilgrim at the BLARNEY STONE

Vintage Artist Drawn B/W Postcard. Blarney Castle. There is a stone there, that whoever kisses, Oh! he never misses to grow eloquint, 'Tis he may clamber to a lady's chamber or become a member of Parliament. A clever apouter he'll sure turn out, or an out-and-outer to be let alone. Don't hope to hinder him, or to bewilder him. Shure he's A Pilgrim at the Blarney Stone.

Series No: 126
Background: The castle originally dates from before AD 1200. It was destroyed in 1446, but subsequently rebuilt by Dermot McCarthy, the king of Munster. On the top of the castle lies the Stone of Eloquence, also called the Blarney Stone. Tourists visiting Blarney Castle may be positioned upside-down and kiss the stone, which is said to give the gift of eloquence. Photographs are taken of the "magic moment".
