so i've decided that "try to see fairies in ireland" [old spelling or new] is being added to my list of things to do before i'm too old to move, or more traditionally, my list of things to do before i die. but whatever. =) and yeah, i'm not gonna say that my average teenage partying days are over=)...buuut it wasn't that great and babies are more funn rite now. haha better enjoy it while they're too tiny to function before they're mouthing off [i.e. my 2 yr old niece shayden] =)

Glorious shots! Love the blue tones in the third from the top in particular.

And out of curiosity; is there a story about the faerie tree?

The Faerie tree is supposed to be inhabited by faeires that will grant you 3 wishes if you sit under it at midnight on a 3 legged homemade stool! If the tree is cut down the person that is resposible will never get a nights sleep for the rest of his lifetime. For the record I have never seen the faeries and I grew up across the road from it. As a sidenote there is a faerie tree outside Ennis town that held up the completion of the Ennis bypass for years.

That kind of thing has happened elsewhere in Ireland too, hasn't it - the faeries holding up the building of a road? If I remember correctly, there was a faerie fort somewhere that they built a road around rather than across? I think I might have read about that in an article by a Norwegian folklorist in fact - will have to dig up the article and see what it said.

Never too late to see the faeries, though :) Thanks for explaining!
