Spooky Creatures: Alp Luachra
Alp Luachra’s, also known as “Joint Eaters” or “Joint Halvers” are a type of dark faerie which inhabit Irish streams and waterways. They typically appear as a small newt. It is said that if a person falls asleep by a watersource, such as a river or stream, the Alp Luachra will crawl into the persons mouth. Then it will feed on either the food that the person had already eaten, or, according to other legends, the persons life-force.
