Subject: apropos banshee.
>From Gaelic bean-sidhe, "woman of the fairy-mounds." The Irish banshee
was a ghostly White Lady whose cry brought death to her hearers. In
Brittany she was Bandrhude, or bane-druid, or dryad of death. She was
identified with Macha, Queen of Phantoms, third person of the Morrigan's
Trinity. That is she was the Crone form of the Goddess, who summoned her
children to death.
