#Omens&Symbols . . . The Sacred Hawthorn Tree


“The large old Hawthorns, growing singly in a field or by an ancient well, are considered very sacred; and no one would venture to cut them down, for the Fairies dance under the branches at night, and would resent being interfered with.”

From ‘Ancient Legends, Mystic Charms and Superstitions of Ireland’ by Lady Wilde. 1887.
