Thread Name: Origins: The Great Silkie
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Words for 'The Great Silke'
Rebecca, here's a trad version from the Orkney Islands about a silkie who traveled to Norway land CLICK HERE. I've heard an almost identical trad Irish version where the silkie travels to Ireland.

Also a couple of links to the silkie mythology:

THE SILKIE FOLK

THE GREAT SILKIE O' SULE SKERRY.
