Sites that Scare Us(Well... a little bit)
Ok, there are no snakes in Ireland, nor are there poisonous spiders. But we need to have some fun with you so we've selected a few sites that may give you pause.
It's all innocent slagging, really (we say this because some Irish may not always have on hand their customary good sense of humour).
What we are wondering, lads, is, why don't these sites ever link back to us?
Spirits of Legend and Fantasy: Banshees (This link was sent to us by a wee lass from Moreno Valley, California, USA, who loves libraries)
When we listen to Irish legends, we often hear about leprechauns. However, leprechauns are only one of many spirits of Ireland.
One, much more frightening and morbid, but arguably more interesting creature of legend is the banshee. These ghost-women appeared in many Irish folktales and are as much an element of Ireland's history as their tiny green-clad counterparts. This page should teach you the basics of what you need to know about banshees.
If your wardrobe absorbs more light than it reflects, if you prefer the quiet solitude of the cemetery to the frenzy of the mall, and you have accepted your weird side, you're in the right place.
If you consider yourself Goth, dark, or any other subculture embracing the shadowy side of life, you will also feel at home."
(We'd like to comment on this but what else could we say?)
Butterflies of Ireland
the Bride Dresses
Ground Beetles of Ireland
This is a nice site and here's what themselves say: "We like to share our Irish birding moments with digital images displayed on our site. Some are common and rare visitors to our shores, with the added interest of foreign birding. Updated weekly."
Drinking Songs for Cat Lovers.
Really? Fill me in, Lads. Who would worry about finding water in Ireland?
And last but not beast is our own Lisdoonvarna page. Only the most stout of heart should venture here.
