WORD OF THE DAY.
The Word of the Day comes from the fabulous THINGS IN JARS by Jess Kidd, which has just usurped HIMSELF, Jess Kidd's debut novel, as my favourite read of the year.
Merrow (from Irish murúch, Middle Irish murdúchann or murdúchu) is a mermaid or merman in Irish folklore. The term is of Irish-English origin. The merrows supposedly requires to have a magical cap (Irish: cochaillín draíochta; Irish-English: cohuleen druith) in its possession in order to travel between deep water and dry land.
