Some say it was Jacob’s Pillow, transported to Ireland by the prophet Jeremiah. Here it turns out to be the Lia Fail or ‘Fatal Stone’, used as an oracular throne of Irish kings, Legend says it was removed to mainland Scotland, where it served as the visionary power of royal progression, the Stone of Destiny.
As Cormac MacCarthy, King of Munster, directed five thousand men to help Robert the Bruce in his defeat of the English at Bannockburn in 1314, a portion of the famous Stone was given by the Scots in appreciation – and sent to Ireland.
Whatever the truth of its origin, it is believed a witch spared from drowning revealed its power to the MacCarthys.
