This Shamrock, Texas attraction is far from that original in both location and style. A shaped stone slab in a park reads: Top O’ the mornin to ya! from Shamrock, Texas. Kiss this Blarney Stone for everlasting good luck!

But don’t be fooled: this is not a piece of the original attraction. Down the street in a plaza you will find an authentic piece of the Blarney Stone encased in a concrete pillar. This one is a total fake.
