Sacred Texts Legends and Sagas Celtic Buy this Book at Amazon.com Contents Start Reading Page Index Text [Zipped] This is one of the most in-depth and scholarly attempts to explain the phenomena of the Celtic belief in fairies.

Based on Evans-Wentz' Oxford doctoral thesis, it includes an extensive survey of the literature from many different perspectives, including folk-lore, history, anthropology and psychology.

Yeats refer to aos sí simply as "the sídhe" (lit.: mounds).[1] In Gaelic mythology[edit] In Gaelic folklore[edit] In folk belief and practice, the aos sí are often appeased with offerings, and care is taken to avoid angering or insulting them. Often they are not named directly, but rather spoken of as "The Good Neighbors", "The Fair Folk", or simply "The Folk".

Aos sí are sometimes seen as fierce guardians of their abodes – whether a fairy hill, a fairy ring, a special tree (often a hawthorn) or a particular loch or wood. The sídhe: abodes of the aes sídhe[edit] As part of the terms of their surrender to the Milesians the Tuatha Dé Danann agreed to retreat and dwell underground in the sídhe (modern Irish: sí; Scottish Gaelic: sìth; Old Irish síde, singular síd), the hills or earthen mounds that dot the Irish landscape.
