History of Blarney

Israeli military operations intensified today in the West Bank, with tanks and troops on
the move in three villages as Israel continued its effort to uproot terror following six
attacks in five days. Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon told his nation on Sunday that
Israel was "at war against terror" and vowed to tear out terrorists "by the roots."
Meanwhile, at least three people were injured -- one seriously -- when a car exploded in
West Jerusalem today.


LONDON, England -- Britain's Prince Charles has paid a moving tribute to his grandmother,
the Queen Mother, who died on Saturday at the age of 101.


In a passionate address from his Highgrove home, the Prince of Wales lamented the loss of
his "indomitable... darling grandmother", saying her death was a moment he had long
dreaded.


The coffin of the much-loved royal, resting in a small stone chapel at Windsor Castle, is
set to be moved to the Queen's Chapel at St. James's Palace on Tuesday. (Obituary)


On Friday the coffin will be transferred to Westminster Hall where she will lie in state
-- only the second royal consort to be awarded the honour -- until her funeral a week on
Tuesday.


Charles said the Queen Mother had an "utterly irresistible mischievousness of spirit...
somehow I never thought (her death) would come".


The prince said: "She seemed gloriously unstoppable and ever since I was a child I adored her."
