Reading Drill No.15

  Today hundreds of thousands of tourists from around the country and around the world make the trip to this tiny village each year in order to kiss the Blarney Stone.  Kssing the stone is no easy task.  It is set high in the castle wall.  Visitors must first climb the long steps to the top of the wall.  Then, in order to reach the stone they must lie on their backs on the walkway above it and lean over backwards while an attendant holds their legs to prevent them from falling.  Now there are warning sign, for in the past, several unfortunate visitors have fallen to their deaths as they tried to kissed the stone.  Still, the prize is worth the danger, for it is said that once it is kissed the stone grants to that individual the gift of eloquence.
