Fairies in County Wicklow!
An unusual occurrence, seemingly linked to the solar eclipse took place recently. It seems as though some fairies took advantage of the daylight darkness and took flight from the wilds of Kerry to set up a new commune in the lush countryside of Co. Wicklow
How this occurred is a matter of scientific fact. It is well known that fairies never travel in the light of day. They need a shield from prying eyes, and what better than an eclipse of the sun?
So where can this new Fairy Trail be found? Is it in a historical location ,with magical links to the past? It seems that it is.
On a misty morning on the 20th March, a gardener at the Russborough Estate near Blessington in Co. Wicklow, was checking the grounds. There had been some commotion earlier when the sun disappeared.His dog was upset. He checked the maze, but nothing was amiss there, so he headed past his cottage to the small island, known as Ladies Island, nearby.
He crossed the Japanese bridge and thought he heard something, so he investigated further.
What a surprise. He nearly stepped on a small house burrowed into a tree. It was the cutest thing he had seen for a long while. He looked further, and guess what, there was an actual magical trail to follow, leading to more miniature houses!
