Cee’s Black and White Challenge – Irish Fairy Tree, Hill of Tara

Ireland is full of Fairy Trees or Wishing Trees.  Even for non-believers the Irish won’t often tempt fate by cutting down or messing with a single tree in a field or misfortune could visit.  People will often leave an item tied to the tree as a symbol of their wish or desire.  I came across many of these trees, the most compelling being those with baby bottles, shoes, and ribbons hanging from them.  I hope these trees bring their visitor’s peace.

  1. I have to say, I found Tara very unassuming and breathtaking at the same time! As an early Irish historian, Tara is an incredibly important place, and I was lucky enough to visit with one of the archaeologists who worked on the site for years. Thank you for reminding me of how wonderful it is 🙂
