The Blarney Stone is part of Blarney Castle in Ireland and thought to be half of the Stone of Scone on which Scottish Kings were crowned. It is believed that kissing the Blarney Stone can grant you the knowledge on how to make conversation and the gift of eloquence. There's no doubt the Irish can make conversation, who are we to question tradition?
Knowing how to make conversation and having real eloquence in conversation are things many of us wish we had but travelling to Blarney Castle in Ireland and kissing a stone set in the castle battlements might not give everyone the ability to make conversation.
Better to spend your time learning how to make conversation by watching talk shows, listening to talk radio programs, attending clubs dedicated to public speaking, and listening to ordinary conversations.
