Just Jeri – Full of Blarney

I know I’m late to discuss St. Patrick’s Day, but for good reason.  I travelled to Ireland for a fun filled week of exploring a good chunk of the Irish coast. We did the scenic drive where The Last Jedi was filmed and saw the sweeping beauty of the Cliffs of Moher. We went to the villages of Adare, Dingle, Killarney, Cork and best of all was Blarney. We visited the famous 15th century Castle of Blarney where you can find the Blarney Stone. The legend is if you kiss the Blarney stone you receive the gift of gab that can get you out of all kinds of sticky situations.

I won’t keep you in suspense. No, I did not kiss the stone because I was too chicken. You have to hang upside above a hole that is high up in the tower of the castle.  What I loved beyond the beauty of the grounds of the Castle was this legend that has prevailed through time. Maybe there is some truth to the stone if we are all still talking about it.  Have you travelled somewhere that had some interesting history? I would love to hear about it leave me a comment below.
