The Legends of the Irish Banshee

Banshee means Faerie woman or woman of the Faerie mound. Many legends exist surrounding the Banshees and just how evil is she meant to be.

The first is that she is the ghost of a young woman who was brutally killed and died so horribly that her spirit is left to wander the world watching her family and loved ones warning them when a violent death is imminent.

This particular type of Banshee appears as an old woman in rags with dirty grey hair, long fingernails and sharp pointed rotten teeth. Her eyes are blood red and filled with so much hatred and sorrow that to look into them will cause instant death. The Banshees mouth is permanently open as she emits a long and painful scream to torture the souls of the living.

According to legend there are a few Banshees that relish in taking a life and will stalk their victim wailing and screaming at them to the point that the victim goes insane or die. It has been told that the Banshee has ripped many a brave man to death with her bare hands. This is the type of Banshee portrayed in Hollywood horror films.

A banshee wails nearby if someone is about to die.

Thank you for looking!

This is excellent! A fantastic image dedicated to one of the least heralded spirits, but one of the most feared. Brilliant.

Great image and thanks for the background info it is really interesting. I was just waiting for the bit where you say most men call their wives or mother-in-laws such ... but apparently not?
