Faerie of traditional Irish Faerie Folklore are old and clever, and love to hang out within a ring of mushrooms. But what are they doing in there? We know they dance, but what else do they get up to?
The wise among us have long been cautious of venturing near a Faerie Ring, the time has come to figure out why.
In this episode, Kitty looks at true accounts of people who have entered a Faerie Ring and lived to tell the tale, (if only for a short time).
We discover that punishment for stepping within a Faerie Ring is swift and grave, and ponder what the Good People are doing within their beloved rings to demand such a harsh response.
Are they really only dancing?
Or could they be: settling a dispute; giving birth; planning sabotage; having a clan reunion; or conducting commerce?
As always, Kitty explains why it’s okay to believe in Faeries and invites you to read more stories of encounters with the Good People, share your own story of an encounter, perhaps one handed down through your family, or just an unusual experience visit Kitty at:
