Interesting Fact : Irish Fairy Forts

In the Irish language, the terms ‘Lios’, ‘rath’, and ‘ringfort’ are commonly used to refer to fairy forts. These are circular or embankment structures typically found in fields or on marshy land. 

According to folklore, it is believed that interfering with these fairy forts could lead to serious consequences, so many people still avoid them. Even today, some people in the Irish countryside use these terms to refer to such places and fields, demonstrating the lasting impact of this folklore on Irish culture.
