Fairies Fear the Force
Recently, the fairies in Darrynane were alarmed. Word was out that The Force had returned to the Great Skellig Island in the Kingdom of Kerry.
One of our little fairies asked a friendly gull to bring her out to see what was going on.
When she returned home she told her friends that everyone needed to be very careful as there were strange happenings on Skellig Michael.
The first thing that was decided was to build a look-out house on nearby Scariff Island.
They watched with interest as boats and flying bumble bees swarmed on and off the great rock. This went on for a whole week! There were people called parapizzas all over the place, looking for a man called Luke who walked on the sky. Nobody knows if they found him.
Back by the beach in Derrynane, the fairies got even busier. They started building fortifications to defend themselves – should this Force come ashore to upset their habitat. They built new houses and special sandcastles, covered with a sprinkling of golden fairy dust for protection.
As quickly as it started, all the excitement ended. The fairies returned to their cosy little houses in the forest.
