The Irish are world masters at talking. If ‘talking’ was an Olympic event, we’d have won every gold, silver and bronze medal since the founding of the modern games – and probably the ancient ones as well! The magic behind our silky, colourful (and non-stop) stories is a little thing called ‘blarney’, or ‘the gift of the gab’.

But what is the secret to this mystical, magical gift, and how can you get some for yourself?

The hilarious ‘A Big Pile of Blarney’ takes you through the history of Blarney Castle, the legend of the world-famous Blarney Stone, the famous lips that have puckered up to it, the Stone’s starring role in books, movies and song, and some of the greatest practitioners of the ‘Blarney arts’ in Irish history. In fact, you’ll find everything you ever wanted to know about blarney and the Blarney Stone but didn’t have the eloquence or witty repartee to find out! But never fear, by the time you’ve finished reading, you too will be overflowing with beguiling blarney know-how and mellifluous oratorical magnetism!
