Sir: On Suzanne Stockman's suggestion that the Stone of Destiny had its origins in Northern Ireland (letter, 13 January), the Irish Epic Second Battle of Moytura, probably one of the earliest sources in which it finds mention, informs us that the stone of Fl was resident in Tara, which is in Meath, not in the North.
It had been brought there from the legendary city of Falias, one of four cities in which, apparently, the "Diabolic Arts" were taught.
Bearing this in mind, might I suggest that it be returned to Westminster, where it doubtless felt at home all those years?
