"The Evil Eye

by

The Evil Eye
Folklore of the Irish & Highland and Island Scots


THE EVIL EYE: The 'Droch shuil' - this is a very potent Highland belief, which clearly has its origins in the Celtic legend of the Fomorian God 'Balor of the Evil Eye'. It is believed that certain people have the ability to blight things on which they cast their gaze; this unfortunate gift can also be possessed by people with no evil intent, and consider themselves cursed by it. Stale urine is a powerful antidote for the Evil Eye. Another way to combat this is to drink three mouthfuls of water which has been poured over silver.
