In an Irish tale, a mermaid arrived on the island of Iona where Saint Columban had established an outpost. The mermaid came to implore a monk with whom she was in love to grant her a soul. The monk remained inflexible: she had to leave the sea first, which she refused. Before disappearing definitively in the waves, she melted into tears that turned into pebbles. Even today, the pebbles of Iona Beach are called “mermaid tears”.
