THE FAIRY OF DEATH

IN IRELAND THE BELIEF IN THE BLACK FAIRY OR THE FAIRY OF DEATH WAS
POPULAR YEARS AGO. IT WAS BELIEVED THAT IF SOMEONE
SAW A LADY COMPLETELY DRESSED IN BLACK THAT IN THREE DAYS
SOMEONE WOULD DIE. THIS BELIEF WAS FULFILLED ONE DAY AS A MAN CAME
RUNNING INTO A SALON EXCLAIMING THAT HE HAD JUST SEEN THE
BLACK FAIRY. THREE DAYS LATER THIS MAN DIED.
