Leave your Tinkerbells and Leprechauns at the door, Kitty is here to talk about the real Faeries: The Good People, The Wee Folk or the Sidhe.
Faerie of traditional Irish Faerie Folklore are old, clever and can be treacherous. They are all around us and watching, always watching.
But what are they thinking?
Are they impressed by our touchscreen technology or do they curse our lack of enlightenment?
Should we fear them?
Here at ‘Encounters with the Good People’ we are going to find out.
In this episode Kitty brushes away the glitter-dust and bins the stigma to take a fresh, open-minded look at who the Faerie really are; ponders why our society is choosing to dismiss Faerie Folklore.
We celebrate Faerie in poem and song and Kitty explains why it’s okay to believe in Faeries.
