Extract from the above publication:

"Kissing the Blarney Stone — The Blarney Stone, which by tradition confers the power of persuasive eloquence on those who kiss it, was formerly about eight feet from the top of the north angle of the tower of the castle, but another more accessible [word omitted?] has been substituted.  Queen Elizabeth [I] is credited with being the first person to use the word."
