Just what we need in this town, more blarney. An enterprising Irish Southern Californian has hauled a piece of the Blarney Stone to Los Angeles to exhibit at the Irish Fair and Music Festival next weekend. Kiss it, and the gift of the gab is yours. There are a few folks, however, from whom we've heard just about enough, whom we would like kept away: * Carrie Fisher * Disney czar Michael Eisner * Feminist lawyer Gloria Allred * Daryl F. Gates * Snort-and-tell author Julia Phillips * The Rev.

Dennis Doyle vividly remembers the Sunday morning 15 years ago when a visiting Irish priest conducted Mass in Gaelic. Doyle, a third-generation Irishman, had never heard the ancient language of his ancestors. "Something inside me stirred," said Doyle, an English teacher at Glendale Community College, and church pianist. "I woke up. I wanted to learn about my culture, my history. I began studying the harp. It's the national instrument of Ireland."
