Do you know the meaning of the word "Blarney"? Well, it endows people with the "gift of gab" or eloquence in speech.
The origins of the word blarney perhaps comes from the time of Cormac McDermot MacCarthy, Chief of Muskerry and possessor of Blarney Castle, Co. Cork, Ireland in the reign of Queen Elizabeth I. It seems that Cormac used his silver-tongued excuses to placate the Queen and her advancing army while still keeping his Gaelic loyalties.
The Queen eventually grew tired of her smooth-talking subject and declared: "This is all Blarney, he never means what he says, he never does what he promises!!"
So, if you are in search of blarney, you will certainly find it here!
Well, go grab a cup of tea, (or a guinness if that is your preference), sit back, and enjoy browsing our site. By the way...... That reminds me of a saying,
"Whisky was invented so the Irish wouldn't rule the world."
And that reminds me of another saying...
"If wars were fought with words Ireland WOULD BE ruling the world!"
