In Celtic folklore, the Irish Leannán Sí "Barrow-Lover" is a beautiful woman of the Aos Sí (fairy folk) who takes a human lover. Lovers of the Leannán Sídhe are said to live brief, though highly inspired, lives. She is generally depicted as a beautiful Muse, who offers inspiration to an artist in exchange for their love and devotion; however, this frequently results in madness for the artist, as well as premature death.
The Ogham. ( pronounced OH-am or OH-yam ) , is also know as the Druid's Alphabet. The letters correspond to their 20 sacred trees. The 25-letter alphabet was supposedly inspired by Ogma, god of eloquence. The letters are strung together along a central line, either vertically or horizontally, in which case the letters are rotated.
