CLIODHNA (pronounced KLEE-nah) is the Irish Goddess of beauty. She was one of the Tuatha de Danaan, and became known as the Fairy Queen of Munster. She fell in love with a mortal named Ciabhan and ran off with him. One day, while Ciabhan was off hunting, Manannan mac Lir, God of the sea, sent a wave that carried her back to the land of fairy.

In the 15th century, the Irishman Cormac MacCarthy called on Cliodhna to give him her assistance with a lawsuit. Cliodhna appeared to Cormac and told him to kiss the first stone that he saw in the morning on his way to court. He did so, and was so persuasive in court that he won his suit. He then took the stone and hid it away in the walls of his castle, where it remains to this day--the Blarney Stone.

Cliodhna, whose name means "the shapely", was also known as CLIODNE, CLIDNA, CLIONA, or CLEENA.

Rawhead And Bloody Bones Aka Rawhead

Rawhead And Bloody Bones Aka Rawhead Cover
For a supposedly made up creature thousands of children have feared him and still do. Said to be as tall as a two story building, he is a terror to behold. His raw head is flayed open and often looks more like a boar's head than a human one. Or sometimes you can see the bloody veins with no skin at all.

His bloody bones are thick and massive. They need covering just like his head you see. And it needs to be very young and tender flesh to cover him. Otherwise he is sore and in a worse temper than usual. Bad children can expect a raw bloody hand to smash through a window. Or perhaps from underneath the bed. He is so very clever. And magical. He'll always find a way in.

There's no escape from him and adults somehow always know about children who went missing. Of course he serves a useful purpose. Scared children do not wander outside at night where very real danger exists. They are also wary of strangers as Rawhead is not above appearing as a human. He is the more acceptable face of death that masks the real horrors of the world.

At the risk of dating myself, he reminds me a lot of Rawhead Rex.
