Fairy Forts

Fairy forts are found all over Ireland.  They are what remain of the ring forts, dwellings originally dating from the Iron Age to early Christian times.  According to legends, they are magical places, entrances to another world. The white thorn bush which grew in them are also considered magical and anyone who cut the white thorn was cursed. Traditional stories tell of tragic events which happened to anyone who tampered with fairy forts.
