daoine sídhe


Quick Reference

[Ir., people of the fairy mound].

One of several euphemisms for fairies in Modern Irish and Scottish Gaelic folklore; the link with the fairy mounds may imply a descent from the Tuatha Dé Danann. Deena Shee is a phonetic anglicization. The reformed Irish spelling is daoine sí.
