At the southern end of Ireland you can find Blarney Castle. High up in the parapet of the castle is the world famous Blarney Stone. Visitors come from far and wide for a chance to see this stone. The Blarney Stone is believed to possess special powers and conveys the eternal gift of eloquence of speech to those who kiss the stone.
Scattered around the world in big cities and little towns are numerous local “Blarney Stones.” The object of this locationless cache is to find these stones. To log this cache you must find a stone that has been officially named a “Blarney Stone.” These will normally be a tribute to the Irish heritage of an area. There must be a plaque or other similar marker declaring the stone a “Blarney Stone.” Places of business named “Blarney” do not qualify unless they have a specific stone on public display labeled as a “Blarney Stone.”
To log a find you will need to provide a photograph that includes three elements. It must show the stone, your GPS receiver, and the plaque (readable) proclaiming the stone a “Blarney Stone.” Examples are provided below. You must also include the coordinates for the stone you find in your log. Any logs that don’t meet this requirement will be deleted.
Each stone can be found multiple times, and I encourage you to use this cache page to locate a stone near you. However, each user can only log this cache once.

The Old Sacramento stone does not technically qualify because it doesn't say "Blarney stone" but old posts will be grandfathered in.
