Isle of Man Mermaid (1961)


According to Peter Costello in The Magic Zoo, there were several sightings of a mermaid around the Isle of Man during 1961. One of the witnesses was said to be the Lady Mayor of Peel. In August 1961 the Manx Tourist Board apparently offered a prize to whoever could capture the mermaid alive.

 The Manx term for mermaid is Ben Varrey and mermen are referred to as Dinny-Mara.
