Cliodhna was an irish godness of beauty or a banshee queen, owning three magical birds who could heal the sick. Cliodhna fell in love with a mortal and followed him to his world. But as often, there was no happy-ending for them: Manannan, god of the sea, created a huge wave that carried her back into the fairy world.In another version she is drowning while sleeping at Glandore Bay, where the tide still is known as 'Cleena's Wave'.I found many conflicting versions of the Cliodhna myth, but since they all agreed somehow there were birds and a wave, you can see both in the picture.
