Those who mix with Irish folk have many examples of it in their everyday experience. A number of stories attempt to explain the origin of surrounding legend. She told McCarthy to kiss the first stone he found in the morning on his way to court, he did so, with the result that he pleaded his case with great eloquence and won.
Thus the Blarney Stone is said to impart "the ability to deceive without offending". MacCarthy incorporated it into the parapet of the castle; the proprietors of Blarney Castle list several other explanations of the origins of the stone on their website. Many of these suppose that the stone had been in Ireland, was taken to Scotland and returned to Ireland in ; the stories listed include one suggesting that the stone was presented to Cormac McCarthy by Robert the Bruce in in recognition of his support in the Battle of Bannockburn.
This legend holds that this was a piece of the Stone of Scone and was installed at McCarthy's castle of Blarney. Although colourful, this folk legend does not account for the fact that it supposes that the stone was removed from Scotland 18 years before Bannockburn , modern analysis suggests that the stone is not related to the Stone of Scone.
The ritual of kissing the Blarney Stone, according to the castle's proprietors, has been performed by "millions of people", including "world statesmen, literary giants legends of the silver screen". The kiss, however, is not casually achieved. To touch the stone with one's lips, the participant must ascend to the castle's peak lean over backwards on the parapet's edge; this is traditionally achieved with the help of an assistant.
Although the parapet is now fitted with wrought-iron guide rails and protective crossbars, the ritual can still trigger attacks of acrophobia , an extreme or irrational fear of heights.
Before the safeguards were installed, the kiss was performed with real risk to life and limb, as participants were grasped by the ankles and dangled bodily from the height.
Holmes' investigation reveals this as a murder as the man's boots having been surreptitiously greased before the attempt. William Henry Hurlbert wrote in that the legend of the stone seemed to be less than a hundred years old at that time, suggesting the tradition began late in the 18th century.
The legend of the Blarney Stone was described in A classical dictionary of the vulgar tongue by Francis Grose , printed , it is claimed that the synonymy of "blarney" with "empty flattery" or "beguiling talk" derives from one of two sources.
One story involves Cormac Laidir MacCarthy. Cormac travelled to see the queen, but was certain he would not persuade her to change her mind as he wasn't an effective speaker, he met an old woman on the way who told him that anyone who kissed a particular stone in Blarney Castle would be given the gift of eloquent speech.
Cormac went on to persuade the queen.
Echoing the supposed power of the stone, an Irish bard of the early 19th century, Francis Sylvester Mahony , added a number of lines to Richard Alfred Millikin's "The Groves of Blarney ". According to tradition at Texas Tech University , a stone fragment on display since outside the old Electrical Engineering Building is a missing piece of the Blarney Stone.
