The Blarney Stone is still there. I saw it and gave it a good rub last Thursday.

Blarney Stone

Dedicated on March 17, 1988 by the Northern Nevada Chapter of the Sons of Erin. This is an actual piece of the actual stone from Blarney Castle in County Cork Ireland, which are rarely allowed out of the country. It is said that rubbing the stone will make you luckier for the day.
