Where is Faerieland?

Some snippets of legend, myth, and theory...

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Pembrokshire Coast
the Welsh thought it to be an invisible island in the Irish Channel just off
this coast

Laugharne and Milford Haven
the faerie are reported to frequent these markets

Hy Breasail
elusive island to the west of Ireland where they lived

Isle of Man
British version of the island theory

Hollow Hills
ancient forts, barrows, and earthworks. May raise itself up on pillars at night
during Lammas Tide (August 7). King Arthur may have been buried in one.

Silbury Hill, Wiltshire
King Sil in his golden armor was buried here atop his horse

Bryn y Ellyllon
translates to Hill of the Goblins, near Mold, Clyd Flint

Castle Neroche
in Somerset. Faeries defended their hill from gold seekers by instilling the
miners with a fierce panic and they all died within a month of the attempt.

Orkney
a Trow warned a farmer there not to dig in a certain mound. The warning was
ignored and the farmer lost his cattle and family.


Faerie Rings
faeries dance in circles and their music lures humans to them. Once inside, a
human cannot escape unless a human chain from the outside is formed to pull
him/her out. Inside, what seems like a couple minutes could actually be several
days.

Gump Hill
near Cornwall, reported to be a popular faerie meeting place

Faerie Islands
elusive islands where all is happiness, it is always Spring, and no one ages or
falls ill. Some float, some are underwater and only come up at night, some are
only visible every so often. Among the best known are the Isles of the Blest
(a/k/a Fortunate Islands), Tir Nan Og (the Land of the Young), Tirfo Thuinn (the
Land Under the Waves), Tire Nam Beo (Land of the Living), Tirn Aill (the Other
World), Mag Mor (the Great Plain), Mag Mell (the Pleasant Plain), and Tir
Tairngire (the Plain of Happiness).

Chaw Gully, Dartmoor
The Knockers here are very protective of their mine. Anyone trespassing will be
killed when a Knocker cuts the rope and the trespasser falls down the mining
shaft. The body is always found the next day neatly laid out at the entrance.

Parish of Bodfari, Denbighshire
A group of Coblynau were once seen dancing in a field there, dressed as British
soldiers with handkerchiefs (red with yellow spots) on their heads.

Fincastle Mill
It was so haunted no one ever set foot there after dark. One girl who dared to
had to defend herself from a leering Brownie who years later killed her by
throwing a stool at her.

Knockma Hill
Under Knockma Hill is King Firvarra's palace. He still holds court there as the
leader of the Daoine Sidhe.
