Aos sí ( aes sídhe) is the Irish name for a supernatural race in celtic mythology comparable to fairies or elves. They are said to descend from fallen angels.

They are said to descend from the Tuatha Dé Danann, meaning the "People of Danu", depending on the Abrahamic or pagan tradition.

The aos sí are said to live underground in fairy forts, across the Western sea, or in an invisible world that co-exists with the world of humans. This world is described in the Lebor Gabála Érenn as a parallel universe in which the aos sí walk among the living.

They are variously said to be the ancestors, the spirits of nature, or goddesses and gods.

Like most folkloric events, the fairies and their magical, mysterious ways are often used to make sense of the indescribable or incomprehensible.

WB. Yeats

"Come away, O human child!
To the waters and the wild
With a faery, hand in hand.
For the world's more full of weeping
than you can understand".
