This took some effort! You have to climb 100 old stone steps to the top of Blarney Castle, then lean back over an open spot 100 ft. in the air to kiss the Blarney Stone.  Once you’ve done it, you have the “gift of gab”.

What is the difference between Blarney and Baloney?  Baloney is flattery laid on with a trowel.  Blarney is flattery laid on with the lips, that’s why you have to kiss a stone to get it!
