There are many fairy trees to be found along the roadside and in the fields of Ireland. Usually they are old hawthorn, oak or ash trees many of which can be hundreds of years old. It is said that the fairies live in these trees! They are a meeting point for the “wee folk” – the leprechauns and fairies who live nearby. It is said that a fairy tree will bring good luck and great care must be taken not to damage or destroy one of these magical trees.
