“Pucker up”

In the small town of Shamrock, Texas is a HIGHLY protected piece of blarney stone. This isn't just ANY Blarney stone from the rolling hills of Ireland. It hails directly from the bluestone of Blarney Castle in Cork, Ireland. The specialist that placed it here claims it had 'accidentally' fallen off the castle. Regardless, it is a highly regarded monument to the Irish roots of the town-hence the concrete encasement.  The folklore of Blarney stone comes from a Blarney stone being placed in the castle that was claimed to never be touched again. An individual, with speaking inadequacies, was told if he kissed it that he would have 'speech so soft and words so fair'. It was true, that man became one smooth talking sun-of-a-gun. Since, tens of thousands have kissed the original Blarney stone.  So if you pass by Shamrock, pucker up, and don't be fooled by the false, even more touristy Blarney stone nearby. (Hint: real one is in concrete with a plaque, false one has a leprechaun on it)

Correction!!! The Blarney Stone has been moved to Blarney Stone Plaza on 2nd and Main St. It's a cute little plaza across from the water tower.

So I am doing the things I feel like I might never get to do again, like drop my Irish Behind rt down into Shamrock TX and Fox the Blarney Stone! So happy. Go to the water tower and make a left left again on S Texas and it on the NE corner

Located in a park in the middle of nowhere, save time and go to the town museum! The lady who works there is super friendly.

Really not worth it. Nice park for kids to stretch the legs, but that's it.
