The Little Merrow…

the littlest mermaidWho lost her Magical Cap!  Merrows wear a special hat called a cohuleen druith, which enables them to dive beneath the waves. If they lose this cap, it is said that they will lose their power to return beneath the water.  Also, a Merrow music is known to be heard coming from the farthest depths of the ocean, yet the sound travels floatingly across the surface.  Merrows dance to the music, whether ashore on the strand or upon the wave.
