I don't know about you, but anytime that I think of Ireland, I think of a green countryside and a touch of the mysterious. Everyone knows about shamrocks, St. Patrick, fairies, and Leprechauns, but what about Pookas, changelings, and banshees?
Pookas- A Pooka is a creature that normally only wrecks havoc and would be considered a mild nuisance, but if a Pooka stands outside, calls to you, and you go out and answer it, it will carry you away forever.
Changeling- A changeling is the deformed (human looking) child of a fairy. The fairy would trade that baby for a human baby. Changeling are ill tempered and only happy when misfortune befalls others.
Banshee- Most people know of banshees, frightened people are said to scream like a banshee, but why do banshees scream? Their scream is said to predict or cause death. Not something you want to hear.
