My non-Irish friend (Lia) writes: "I try to avoid getting embroiled in
ethnic/racial issues. (especially when I'm not a party to them.<G>) If I
were asked, I would say that if there really were a Lia Fail than it is
most likely in Westminister. If it had been hidden and a subsitute given
in its place, I doubt the Scots would have given up so easily. They lost
their rallying icon when Edward capture the stone. Now I understand that
there are several Lia Fails. The Scottish Stone of Scone (in
Westminister) and I thought I'd read about an Irish and Welsh lengend of
their own Lia Fails. Just as Jewish, Christianity and Islam overlap and
differ in accounts. Hmmm...have to see if I can find where I read that.
So many of the lengends in England overlap. The proximity of the peoples
and cultures led to a lot of "borrowing" I'm sure."
