... who live in caves and stay out of the way of humans. Ross explained that the locals near the fairy glen actually wrote to the tour company and asked that they not take unbelievers to see the glen, so, we all became believers, for a short time anyway. The fairies have to be pleased so it is tradition to take nothing, not a stick or rock, and to leave something. I had a mint wrapped in cellophane with the Air ...
