Land blessing tradition survives as farmers seek to ward off piseogs – FarmIreland.ie

Dermott Hayes, from his blog, Postcards from a Pigeon, dermotthayes.com and I got into a great discussion about fairy poetry. He shared this poem with a link to read the poem: http://www.irishcultureandcustoms.com/Poetry/TheFairies.html which led him to share this great post about the piseogs. Enjoy. ❤
