Robin y Gate, Robin of the Road," is the name -doubtless that of the occupant originally, though no dwelling stands there now-of a field on the right of the main road near Ballamodda, on Ballaglea quarterland. Like the Clagh Ur close by, it is a place with an unhallowed reputation. An ordinary moddey dhoo haunted this part of the road, but there was something worse, something too dreadful, seemingly, to bear description. Even in England there is an old proverb which explains the consequence of speaking of the Devil.

W. Walter Gill, A Manx Scrapbook, 1929

Named after the place where a Moddey Dhoo was reported to have taken up residence. A Moddey Dhoo is a Manx spirit - a black hound of bad omen. The Moddey Dhoo, or Mauthe/Manthe Dog was made more well known by the Scottish Writer, Sir Walter Scott in his Waverley Novels as aa fiend, or demon, in the shape of a large, shaggy, black mastiff". The lip tint shade is a bright cherry red that can apply sheerly for a rosy pink, reminiscent of the Robin Redbreast and the name of the place this beast is said to make its home.

Lip balm

Colour lasts without drying out the lips. Stays on after eating and drinking. No tackiness or greasiness. Recommended.

Love it

Goes on nice and smoothly and it looks good on me. Shipped earlier than I expected, and I think the ghost collection is a pretty cute idea.
