  • Notes

    • One of the most famous of the "omen ghosts" is the Irish banshee. The word banshee comes from the Gaelic 'bean sidhe', meaning "woman of the fairies".
      The banshee is heard but not seen, and the noise of her wailing is said to be heard before a death, not by the person about to die, but by a family member or friend. Despite the association with death, The banshee is not heald to be an evil spirit. According to legend the banshee is a protective spirit, watching over family members, giving guidance in its own way. The banshee, unable to express itself in human language, has to warn of impending death by wailing. The banshee is unable, by fairy law, to let her presence be known at other times. Some of the older Irish families still consider themselves to have a banshee as a guardian watching over them.
