A Manx Sea Charm

by Ber Weyde

Published in 1913 in volume I of Mannin and contributed by ‘Cushag‘, this charm appears to have been collected from Kirk Bride:

“The people was goin’ down to the sea with cans to get the sea-water for cures. An’ they were sayin’ a charm an’ when they met every third wave they were dippin’ the water out of it an’ bowin’ themselves.”
