Subject: RE: REQ Water Kelpie/Oran Tlaidh an Eich-Uisge
Hi all, I haven't found the books referred to here so if anyone knows a site on the internet with the gaelic words I'd love to know. Also I am still unsure as to whether the Lullaby of the Water Horse is the same tune as The Water Kelpie.

I promise I'll learn how to use the MidiText programme and post the tune of the water Kelpie. It might help my search.

And Annraoi, I assume you saw the movie called The Secret of Roan Innish? Based on the idea of a woman who changed from seal to human form & back again. Similar to the Great Silkie of Sule Skerry song about a seal/man.
