Back in 1959 the town of Shamrock decided they needed a little luck (or a small tourist draw…) and they picked up a piece of the famous Blarney Stone. They encased it in concrete, but left it kissable!
So we did.
And I didn’t catch the plague like I thought I might.
But I wouldn’t do it again.
If you are driving through the Texas Panhandle and see Shamrock on your route, make a quick stop and stretch your legs. If you aren’t driving through Shamrock, it is absolutely not worth going out of your way for.
Think this post is short? It is – because it’s a flippin’ stone in a concrete cylinder. There’s not much else to say.
