There are many different aspects of Fairy Lore in Celtic Ireland.
The people of the Tuatha Dé Danann retreated to an Otherworld after the Milesians came to Ireland and became known as the Sidhe pronounced shee.
These became some of the Gods and Goddesses as well as Fairy Kings and Queens of the Celtic people in later times.
