#mythbeasts Irish Beasties

This Tuesday, 03/15/2011 at 6:30 pm Eastern Standard Time, on twitter, we will be discussing Irish folklore monsters.

Some of the ones we may discuss:

Banshee:
The female spirt that foretells death with her mournful screaming or singing.

Leprechaun:

This jolly shoemaker didn't always wear green or sell breakfast cereals.

Puca:
A shapeshifter that started horrible, but later became an imaginary friend to Jimmy Stewart in Harvey.

Kelpie:

The horse in the water.

Selkies:
Seals that can transform into humans for love, mainly.

The Cat S├Čth:
My cat impersonating a Cat Sith

The large black cat that haunts the countryside.

Merrow:
Irish mermaids.

Sluagh:
From Legacy of Kain. The original ones from myths looked like crows.

Sprits of the restless dead.
