That's interesting, so banshees are a type of fae.  Learn something new every day.  :)

It's interesting that the Scottie banshee has similarities with the Morrigan who I believe is a Celtic goddess of war.


(again from wiki)
The Morrígan ("phantom queen") or Mórrígan ("great queen"), also written as Morrígu or in the plural as Morrígna, and spelt Morríghan or Mór-ríoghain in Modern Irish, is a figure from Irish mythology who appears to have been considered a goddess, although she is not explicitly referred to as such in the texts.
The Morrígan is a goddess of battle, strife, and sovereignty. She sometimes appears in the form of a crow, flying above the warriors, and in the Ulster cycle she also takes the form of an eel, a wolf and a cow. She is generally considered a war deity comparable with the Germanic Valkyries, although her association with a cow may also suggest a role connected with wealth and the land.
She is often depicted as a trio of goddesses, all sisters,[1][2][3] although membership of the triad varies; the most common combinations are Badb, Macha and Nemain,[4] or Badb, Macha and Anand; Anand is also given as an alternate name for Morrigu.[5] Other accounts name Fea, and others.

I have heard that the trio of goddesses were also collectively called The Babh (the bh at the end is a V sound) Consisting of Morrigu, Macha, and Niambh (pronounced Neeve I believe)... I suppose it depends on the part of Ireland you came from as to the make up of this group...  It is also sometimes put forward that Morrigu was the inspiration for the Arthurian witch Morgan Le Fay...

(editted for spelling)

I meant to put in that Niamh is also listed as the daughter of Mannan Mac Lir and Fand(?) and not as a sister to the others in the Morrigna and has a prominent place outside of the Trio... So mythologically speaking she most likely was not considered part of them to the vast majority of people at the time...

Irish myths are a hobby of mine, and as I was pressed for time I opted for the old wiki cut 'n paste rather than try to type it all out...

There's a passage in the Bible that says something to the effect that "there are more things in heaven and earth that  is known"

My belief, the older I get kind of upholds this, in that I've seen and heard things, that are not easily explainable and hence I come to UM to visit with others who might or might not have, seen and or heard of strange phenomenon.

The mighty Tuatha De Danann, stealers of childern. Scary things. There is a good book that looks at the myths and historical accounts of missing people and sightings dealing with fairies, trolls, ogers, dwarves, etc. very interesting. After reading it I believe there is something there, not sure what, but something.
"Caverns, Cauldrons, and Concealed Creatures" by William Michael Mott. the new expanded version is on his website, amazon has the old one.

Of course fairies exist. Look at my avatar. Those are fairies. We all know that innocent teenage girls couldn't and wouldn't fake photos of fairies so they have to be real.

Apparently fairies are two dimensional.
