Fairy Folk and Horses Heads: superstition and folklore in Ulster – 26 Mar

Dr David Hume will discuss popular folklore and belief in the 18th and 19th centuries and in recent times.

He will examine the belief in fairies, banshees, the afterlife, and explain how people made sense of the landscape around them with the assistance of the supernatural!

While most folklore is of Irish origin, there are Scottish and even Scandinavian superstitions and beliefs within our folk tales.

As well as belief in living creatures such as the fairies, there are also beliefs in ghosts and entities from the spirit world, which Dr Hume will discuss in this talk.
