QUOTE (Madadh @ Dec 29 2003, 06:29 AM)
Maggiemahone1,

Not only have some of us kissed the stone, but a few of us have been accused of taking bites out of it biggrin.gif

May you live a long life
Full of gladness and health
with a pocket full of gold
As the least of your wealth.

Heck, I think some of the people I know have half the stone in their pocket!

Not me, though, I'm the shy quiet type. Sometimes...



--------------------
"All that is gold does not glitter, Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither, Deep roots are not reached by the frost.
From the ashes a fire shall be woken, A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken, The crownless again shall be king..."

Massi ! At last, another member of my clan !

Who knows what all we Italians are made of ...

NOT quite what I expected ....
I did'nt dream I'd be hanging from my heels, with my bum

Soooooooooo, in an Irish Chat Room on AOL one day,
I said I kissed the Stone..
then a few of the men in the room.. told me, well what they do to it..
I hope they were kidding !

Just wanted to come by and say Hello !

I have never been to the emerald isle, but my ancestors came from there. One of my great grandads started the whole legend. I read about it in an irish names book at the highland games. somone refresh my memory please what the whole circumstances were surrounding the legend of the blarney stone. Its been a while since that highland game. I have been accused of having the gift of blarney by people who dont know my irish heritage.

Hi and Welcome, reddrake79! From what I have read about the Blarney Stone it's called the Stone of Eloquence. Once you kiss this stone you have the Gift of Gab! biggrin.gif Blarney Castle is located in County Cork and the stone is somewhere near the castle. I've never been to the Emerald Isle but I hope to go there in the future.

www.irelandseye.com has some info on Blarney Castle and the Blarney Stone.

maggiemahone1,

The Blarney Stone is on the top rampart of the Castle. It is held in place now by Iron Bars and one has to hang out under the rampart to kiss it.

Arianrhod,

Was the old man still holding the ladies when you kissed the stone biggrin.gif biggrin.gif

Thanks Madadh, I'm not sure if I want to kiss the stone, just think of all the lips that have been on it! biggrin.gif

Howdy, I figured I'd stop by to introduce myself. Well, I'm Sarah or Froggy doesn't matter what you call me. I livein a little in Tennessee,USA so I haven't really been exposed to the Celtic Culture except for when I lived in Ohio. I just started finding information on my family turns out I'm heniz 57 with my mom's side Italian (came over in the 1800's), German ( came over 1723), Welsh (1900's) and Crowe. And my dad's Irish, not sure where where though, Scottish, german and Cherokee. But I do know one thing I'm part of the Clan Gordon through my grandmother.

Hi,
Just like Froggie, I'm Heinz57 too smile.gif
And in TN... Born in WV and lived for a short time in OK
So new to learning about Celtic Culture...
Some of my Dad's ancestors are from England, France, Italy, Spain, Mexico and as far as I know, all of my mother's were Scottish or Irish.
Some of my family came from Scotland and Ireland...
Hoy's I think were Scotch Irish, but I have no idea about where exactly they were from. Hannen's or Hannon's were from Ulster around 1743 or so I think..
Anyone heard of those?
Anne

I would like to introduce myself, my handle is Celtic woodsman and I am very proud of my celtic heritage. My family or surname be it as it is is Brady. I know that there sure are a lot with that name, and we have been able to trace it back in the US for a while....but when the family was back in Ireland, all the Bradys seemed to be clustered together...I do know that there are some in Kerry and Caven, but also family in the Scottish Isles....So I would like to introduce myself as Brady from the Irish house Brady, andalso Brady of the McDonald of the Isles...we have some documentation of both....so in that way I guess I am celtic heinz57 scottish/irish

I am new to this thread, although I've been on the boards for a month or so. I hope we can include descendents of Scots-Irish folk here. I am a mix of Irish (O'Dwyer, Doherty) and Scots-Irish (Austin) as well as Highland and Lowland Scots, and English. By my estimate my family tree is 5/8 Scotch, 1/8 Irish, 1/8 Scots-Irish, 1/8 English. Anyway, I'm proud of my Irish connections and I'd love to learn more about Irish traditions and talk Scots-Irish history as well.

Slainte,
Rory MacA

Guess I'll chime in here with the first post (in this forum) in 2005... I'm part Irish, part Scottish, some English and Welsh, and a good bit Cherokee and Crow... I've always had a fascination with Ireland --- I suppose because of my heritage. Many things about the Celtic culture appeals to me though.

I'd really like to learn more about it, especail the language and culture of the Gaeilgeori.
On that note, does anyone know of a god place to start to learn Irish Gaelic? I have a book, but I'm having the worst time trying to figure out pronunciations...

Glad to find you all!
