Banshee



In Irish legend a Banshee is a female spirit/fairy that wails to warn of a death. The word 'banshee' comes from the old Irish words 'ben', a woman, and 'side' a fairie and means 'woman of the fairies'. The legend of the Banshees has been an integral part of Irish folklore for hundreds of years.
