by Edwin Austin Abbey (1852-1911).

Let’s go to Brittany, home of the Corrigan!

Brittany is a beautiful region of the most western peninsula of France.

Along with Ireland, Scotland, Wales, Cornwall and the Isle of Man, Brittany is one of the Celtic nations and enjoys its own unique Faerie folklore.

As all keen Faerie observers will know: we must resist the temptation to judge a Faerie by its appearance.

And so it is with the Corrigan of Brittany.

Known for her beauty, golden tresses, sparkling eyes, moist lips and ever-beckoning arms, she delights in harassing, seducing and sometimes even destroying, human men.

Her feeling toward human men teetering on that fine line tween love and hate.

Join Kitty as she ponders why the Corrigan carries a particular grudge against men of the clergy.

Could it be the Corrigan, to this very day, is holding them accountable for the persecution and ultimate demise of their Ancestors?
