The Horned Women

 

Capture horns

 

Enclosed is document of a traditional Gaelic folk tale.

My mothers side of the family come from the Scottish isles where Scottish Gaelic is the first language. The story unlike almost all Gaelic tales has no mention of god and there are no male characters aside from briefly mentioned family members.

It’s a cool story when thinking about witchcraft and feminism, I’ve been researching witches and traditional stereotypes that are documented. Will enclose an Essay by Rebecca MccDonald.
