“As an indicator of the otherworldly, the Black Dog is known in many lands,
and in Ireland is regarded as a frequenter and protector of fairy sites such
as their dwellings and pathways. Normally, the same dog is seen over several
generations in the same location, huge, often immobile, watching menacingly,
though rarely dangerous if left in peace…..”

~Eddie Lenihan & Carolyn Eve Green; Meeting the Other Crowd,
