Aoibheall of Clare.
I am pretty sure @jimfitzpatrick
Would do a better a job and @irish_mythology
a better tale, but that's what you have! Happy st Patrick's !!! ☘️☘️☘️☘️☘️ Aibell (sometimes Aoibheall), was the guardian spirit of the Ó Bríen clan. She was the ruler of a sídhe in north. Munster, and her dwelling place was Craig Liath, the grey rock, a hill overlooking the Shannon.
She also had a lover (called Dubhlainn Ua Artigan) and a magic harp of which it was said "[w]hoever heard its music did not live long afterwards". A folk legend, told in Co Cork, concerned Cliona and her reputed sister Aoibheall, who were claimed to have been daughters of a druid who lived in the rath of Castlecor, near Kanturk. Both of the ladies were in love with a young chieftain of the O Caoimh (O’Keeffe) family, but Aoibheall was his favourite and he was engaged to be married to her. Cliona enlisted the help of an old nurse skilled in magic, and so caused Aoibheall to pine to the point of death. She then told Aoibheall that she would have her cured if she renounced her love for O Caoimh, but Aoibheall refused and Cliona struck her with a magic wand, turning her into a white cat .
