Around the World with Gummibär: Blarney Castle

I heard Blarney Castle was a MUST-SEE on my trip to Ireland for Around the World with Gummibär, so I decided to check out this super cool castle! GOLO GOLO!

Blarney Castle, a medieval fortress in Cork, Ireland, draws visitors each year who wish to kiss the famous Blarney Stone. According to Irish folklore, anyone who kisses the stone receives the ability to speak with eloquence, or “The Gift of the Gab.” Although the McCarthy Clan constructed Blarney Castle, different families possessed it over the centuries. The current Blarney Castle is the third castle constructed on this site. Yes- there are three! The first one was made of wood. Two centuries later, around 1210, a stone castle replaced the wooden one. In 1314, Cormac McCarthy, King of Munster, gave Robert the Bruce of Scotland 5,000 soldiers to help him fight England in the Battle of Bannockburn; the soldiers defeated England’s King Edward II. Bruce presented the Stone of Destiny–the stone that was to become the Blarney Stone–to the McCarthy Clan. Cormac McCarthy placed the stone in the Blarney Castle’s battlement.
