New Poem: The Legend of the Moruadh

The moruadh are the "mermaids" of Celtic tradition.  Unlike those of Hans Christian Andersen, these "ladies of the sea" are completely human in appearance with the exception of slight webbing between the digits and wider, flatter feet to aid in swimming.  According to legend, some mated with the O'Sullivan clan and others.  More information about the moruadh or merrows may by found at http://www.irelandseye.com/animation/explorer/merrows.html
