Rebekah Lodge The Shine is a block of 1 i m e- stone approximately four feet lon» by one foot wide and nine inches deep. Various legends are heard about the Stone, m a n y belonging to the MacCarthy f a m i l y . One has it that Cormae MacCarthy rescued a woman from drowning. He thought she was a peasant h u t she proved lo be a witch. As a reward for saving her life, s h e told him of a ma^ic stone in the Castle that would cive. the Rift of who cs covered the fences and walls of rhe homes. Lots of wild flowers, fields of beets and potatoes, castles, very old but s t i l l beautiful, all marie our trip a most interesting one. Tiip tables were already made up when we got on the t r a i n and luncheon was served before reaching Dublin. Dublin. "The Fair City Where Girls Are So Pretty" is the capital of the Republic of Ireland and its largest port. It was found- eternal eloquence to any one would kiss it. The word. "Rlarney" Roes hack to Queen Elizabeth's time. T h e MacCarthy who reigned at t h i s time, was able to out-talk a n y- one. He never kept his word in any of his dealings. Queen Eliza- he:h. in dissust. said one evening, "R'.arney. blarney, w h a t he says be does not mean. It is the usual blarney." To kiss the Stone moans hang- ins ihe head downward over the old square tower in a somewhat dangerous way. I had to remove my glasses and anyone with open ·pockets must f i r s t empty them to keep from losing the contents. A mat is spread on the floor for one 1o lie on. A guard put his arms around my waist and I had to inch my body through the opening, above whieh rests ihc Stone. Iron railings are on each side, giving one both physical and moral support. After kissing. The Stone, I was helped lo my feet, thus following t h e custom t h a t has been in existence f o r more i h a n o n e hundred years. Since this is the second tune 1 have kissed t h e Fdarney Stone. T now h a v e a faint suspicion there must be a b;i of blarney, so far as eternal eloquence is concerned. I also found t h a t returning down the steps is an easy way of get- t i n g lost wirh so many doorways lieckoning me down, so back to the top and better luck the next time. On to Cork, only five m i l e s from the Castle, and a convenient ·tourist comer for the south of Ireland. Tiie history of Cork dates back lo beiore the s i x t h century when St. Fin Barre's Protcstani Cathedra! was founded near I'niv- ers:iy College. Yicinria Hole!, w e I ! locaied on Cork's ma,n siree;. was our home for ihe night. The next day was o;ir Independence Day and the first thin-.: r noticed when going in- lo the d.ning room for breakfast was two United States flags on one of the iables near the door. F.ven though 1 was rested a n d happy a f t e r a go.xl night's sleep, seeing o;ir f l a g s gave me additional supper; l h a t only "Old Glory" can give me "lien traveling in a foreign oiuniry. Off thai morning by t r a i n to Dublin. Fields were a b e a u t i f u l green, a very go.v] reason for tiie name of "Kmcrald Isle." Trees planted between ihe fields creat- j ledge, e d lovely, h i l l s i d e scenes. Ros-' ed by the Vikings in 832 A.D. and is rich in historical lore. Dublin is a cily of w i d e streets, lovely squares a n d parks. O u r sightseeing tour took us through Ihe city, visiting its great buildings and cathedrals. One can start at the 125-foot Lord Nelson Memorial P i l l a r in the c e n t e r of O'Con- ne'.l Street, one of Kuropc's widest and finest thoroughfares. Or. climb the Pillar for a view of the city wi:h the Liffey River and i t s n i n e bridges, a main part of Dublin, and with Ihe H i l l s of Wicklow r i n g i n g ' I h e city with a m a n i l e of green. See ihe General Post O f f i c e , built in ISIS: the old Parliament House: T r i n i t y College, founded in 1591 and its fabulous collection of manuscripts, i n c l u d i n g the world- famous B.iok of Kclis, a priceless copy of the Gospels, d a t i n g from the 7ih c e n t u r y , the most beauti- f u l , i l l u m i n a t e d m a n u s c r i p t in existence. See. also. Dublin Casile. d a t i n g from the thirteenth century: St. Patrick's Cathedral, founded in 1130; and Christ Church Caihed- ral. founded in 103S by the Danes In this Cathedral the first performance of Handel's "Messiah" was conducted by the composer i n l i l - . Here is Ihe Bank of Kire. D u b - lin's finest building, formerly the seat of the Irish Parliament and many other interesting buildings of tiie past as well as modern rie- p a n m e n ; stores of today. Back to the ship, bound for Ohan. Scotland. A lovely Fourth-of- .luly dinner, and the ladies were asked to wear dresses of r e d , white or blue in the "Spirit of '76." This was done and a good time was had by all.
