The Aos Sí
(Sídhe), the fairy folk of Ireland are alive and well and are living beneath the sídhe,
fairy mounds dotted all around Ireland. They are reputed to be the Tuatha Dé Danann who retreated underground after defeat in battle by the Milesians.Though sometimes referred to as a beautiful race, and always ready to dance, they are also associated with carrying out a range of dastardly
deeds, particularlythe stealing of babies, and sometimes people not so young.
