Fairy Raths

The old ruins of ancient raths or compounds are considered to be still ruled by the Sidhe race.  There were many superstitions regarding walking over the remains of old ring-forts and lisses (court-yards).  It was thought that misfortune would befall on any who disturbed the peace of the Sidhe.  Also there are accounts of people becoming inexplicably lost after walking over the site of a ring-fort.
