Blarney Stone-Ireland. The Blarney Stone is a famous Irish historical site located in the village of Blarney, just a mere 8 kilometers from the city of Cork. It’s a huge block of stone that was a gift of gratitude to the Irish people from Robert the Bruce, for their unwavering support in the 1314 battle of Bannockburn. Robert Bruce was my 18th Great Granfather.
